Your Insecurities Might Be Robbing Your Kids of Their Future
Setting off on a new journey can be tough. It’s even tougher when our success or failure is going to affect our children.
You really want to give your kids the gift of a foreign language but not being fluent or an expert may be stopping you from taking that leap. It makes perfect sense to be scared right now – but your insecurities could be robbing your children of their future.
I know this because a few years ago, I was in the exact same spot. As a mother, I wanted nothing but the best for my kiddos. But I was terrified! How was I supposed to teach them French all by myself when I didn’t speak a single word?
I would get all the pronunciations wrong and I’d mess up their chance of getting fluent. Right?!
When I started teaching my preschoolers French at home, it took a lot of courage to finally take things into my own hands. I was convinced it was all going to blow up in my face. Resources were not easily available – YouTube and Pinterest lessons did little to help my kids. Also, where was I going to find the time?
It would have been so easy to list out all the reasons it wouldn’t work and just give up on the idea altogether. I nearly did.
But if I had done that, I wouldn’t have just gotten back from a trip to France with my kids where they ordered me my daily cup of coffee in perfect French while we took in the wonderful sights and sounds of lil French cafe’s in the country.
So mama, instead of making a long list of reasons NOT to get started - I suggest making a VERY long list of reasons to get started on this journey.
Some ideas for the list 😉…
🧠 Brain benefits
🏫 Great college and job prospects
🌎 A better understanding of different cultures + travel
…and so much more!
When you make the decision of raising bilingual kids, you’re giving them the chance to immerse themselves in different cultures and communicate with those different from them. You’re also guaranteeing some insane brain benefits 🦸♂️🦸♀️
I knew this was the future I wanted for my kiddos – so I just couldn’t let my own insecurities and fear take it from them.
There were highs and lows and lots of fumbling and tumbling but it paid off more than I could’ve ever imagined. All because I dared to dream big.
So don’t let your insecurities get in the way. You don’t have to be an expert at everything, you just need to create a fun, interactive learning environment.
You’re capable of anything you put your mind to. And even though it’s normal to feel terrified right now, trust me when I say there’s no better feeling than watching your kiddos thrive in life. And by taking that first step and stepping out of your comfort zone, you’re going to change their lives forever.
I dare you to dream BIG for your kiddos mama!
