7. You Want Your Children to Get a Head Start in School

Unfortunately in the U.S., usually children do not start learning a language until around middle or high school. Many people complain about this doing a disservice to children by not taking advantage of the language acquisition skills they possess at a young age.

Whether you raise your children to be bilingual or not, knowing that your children will eventually learn another language later in life may persuade you to teach them earlier in life regardless. I know many people who really struggled learning another language in high school because they were simply too preoccupied with other subjects and unable to devote the necessary time to properly understanding the curriculum. This is a disadvantage to many students and sometimes no matter how hard you study, you just cannot seem to grasp those verbs and conjugations. So parents if you have the opportunity do not hesitate to benefit for all these reasons to raise bilingual children.
