A Sponsored Giveaway, from Little Pim

I’ve always said that if I had ten wishes, I would want to be fluent in every single language and dialect in the world. I’d also want to be able to walk perfectly, without any discomfort, in super high heels. But, I digress. My best friend, Janet, is of Cuban and Guatemalan decent. In fact, it just dawned on me that y’all probably think her name is Janet. In reality, it’s pronounced Jeanette. That’s because English is her family’s second language and, when she went to school, she pronounced her name like her parents pronounced it: ya-net and, just like that, she became Jeanette.
I digress again, but not entirely.
There was a once a time we went shoe shopping in Van Nuys and there was a group of guys that were clearly saying something mean (in Spanish) about the “little white girls” in the store. I remember the pride taking over every crevice in my body as Janet turned around and – in perfect Spanish – told them off. The look on their faces was to-die for.
There’s a lot of parents out there that have Spanish speaking nannies and brag to other moms about how their kids are growing up bilingual and therefore better than yours. That’s not me. Instead, I want my kids to learn Spanish so they can tell off that group of guys in the shoe store.
And so, I’ve started teaching them via Little Pim.Little Pim is a little panda that teaches children a second language. Geared toward children aged 0-6, when the brain is wired to learn up to three different languages, Little Pim offers DVDs in eleven different languages. The benefits of doing such are vast. Learning a second language contributes to cognitive development, prepares your child for what has become a global marketplace, and improves analytical and social skills. I also feel that if my kids are going to be sitting in front of the TV or computer, why not engage them in something educational? Two birds, one stone is my style o’ parenting. 
To my surprise, Little Pim held both of my boys attention. And, since starting the CD series, both have asked to watch it and have chosen to do so over Curious George or other cartoon favorites. It feels good to be cooking dinner knowing they are being entertained by something educational. It’s also been fun to dust off my own Spanish speaking skills (I studied Spanish in high school and have traveled to over six Spanish speaking countries, not to mention communicating with Spanish speaking patients in the hospital). You can read more about the benefits to introducing young children to a second language by clicking here. They also have apps available, which you can check out here

    I took French in high school, but I think Spanish would probably end up being more beneficial for my kids to learn, especially if we end up moving to a state where there is a higher Spanish population.

  2. Heather says:

    Liked Little Pim on Facebook

  3. Heather says:

    I’m now following you on Facebook as well! Love your blog and photos!

  4. Most definitely, I’d choose Spanish. I’m actually half Mexican and my mom is full, but she just won’t speak to my 22 month old in Spanish (just like she didn’t speak Spanish to my brother or I growing up). My husband and I REALLY want our daughter to learn it.

  5. I am already a Facebook follower.

  6. Previous comment was to say I’m a FB of yours. And I’m a bloglovin’ follower of yours.

  7. I’m an Instagram follower of yours.

  8. Kim says:

    Wow, this is super cool. So neat to see their little captivated faces. The day they say “hola” to me, I will fall over in awe.

  9. christina says:

    i am with you and i would go with spanish. our nanny speaks spanish and has been teaching my son a little here and there. so the other day we were at the store and another mother was speaking spanish to her children and one of them was getting into trouble. so naturally the mother started counting to 3 to get her child to listen (as we do). so she started “uno…dos…” and my 2.5 year old shouts out “TRES!”. like it was no big deal. so i am definitely excited so see where this takes him!

    I follow you on Facebook and Instagram. I would choose Italian. My Grandma is an Italian war bride, she married my grandpa at age 16 and came to America at age 17. Her story is so amazing. I would love for my Charlie to learn Italian so he can someday talk with his distant cousins in Italy.

  35. Alison Z says:

    My best friend is Puerto Rican and Haitian and most people assumed she was black. We had many similar episodes of people trash talking in Spanish and her turning around to respond! It’s the best!!

    I would choose Spanish, since I live in southern California and my son is half Mexican. Unfortunately, my husband’s parents did not teach him Spanish and my limited Spanish, just doesn’t cut it.
