How do I get the daily questions for kids, or the tips for raising bilingual kids?

We offer daily creative questions to ask kids aged 4-10. It’s called Q4KIDZ. The questions can be silly or serious, and they help spark meaningful conversations with kids (as opposed to the all-too-familiar, “How was school?” “Fine.” conversation). It’s free, and you can sign up to receive it via Facebook Messenger or by text.

We also offer tips for parents raising kids to be bilingual (speaking both Spanish and English). We send songs in Spanish, tongue twisters, and other activities to remind parents to practice Spanish every day with their kids.
