Being a bilingual parent

I wrote about why I speak Urdu with my kid for Vice. I’m trying desperately to get her to pick some of it up – she understands everything I say but opts to reply in English unless she really wants something from me like a chocolate bar. Then the Urdu pops out. Because she knows I will give in. Clever girl.
