The question has always remained the same— why is everybody speaking English with their kids in the house even after school hours these days? and we believe the plausible is that little voice chiming in the very line “why should people not speak English with their kids…”?
It is rather strange how parents have chosen to speak to their kids using a language they are not fluent in. These days you walk by 3 parents and 4 of them are speaking some poorly constructed English with kids who are already struggling with the language in school.
My truth is, it is not all bad if and only if these parents have their English speaking game upright. If their tenses are impeccable, it would serve these kids right but unfortunately, many of these parents are the worst-case scenario.
So imagine what they put kids through when they jam past and present tense together with past participle and future tenses all in the same sentence.? it is insane!
We chanced on this video of Tracey Boakye and her son having a good time in the pool, practicing the same thing we cannot fathom. Is she any better withe the Queen’s language—should she not be speaking Twi with him?
