Resource review:           Some distributors of products for bilingual children

Q&A:                           Our 13-month old daughter is looked after by her grandmother most days and hears Spanish at  her house. My wife and I speak only English with her. So far, our daughter only says a few words, but they are all Spanish. Should we tell her not to say "aqua" when she tasks us for water?

                                    I noticed many months ago that our 3-year-old daughter had not yet learned the distinction, in either language, between "I" and "you". Since then, she has learned  that difference in English, but doesn't yet have it in Greek.
