Ok so I went to TX and I was there for almost a month. I have a lot of family there and they kept on telling me to teach my kids Spanish so I did start while I was out there and since I have tried now my son is 4 and my middle child is 2 and she is still not really talking but she is picking up words and in therapy and I'm not having to much trouble teaching her Spanish but my son while I was out there wanted to learn and was repeating some words but now that we are back home and I'm the only one trying to teach him because his father although he speaks Spanish and is Mexican doesn't speaks it well he isn't helping me but since we have been home every time I try to teach him he mocks my words and makes fun of them by saying them wrong and in a weird way and then laughing. like if I say hola he will say holachacha or something like that and his sister hears it and laughs and then she doesn't want to listen to what I am trying to teach her. I don't know what to do I'm trying to teach them spanish so they can know our language and so my family and their dad's family can get off my back but it's hard when my son decides at the age of 4 to be a smart***! any suggestions?
