My son is quite competitive. For example, he eats his food very fast all of a sudden if we tell him "see your baby brother is almost finished when your bowl is full". So, me and my husband sometimes tell him, I know more words in Mongolian than you do. Then he says, "Nooooo, I know everything in Mongolian" then we ask him words, sentences in ml. When I get bored and stop he says "Mooore, mooore!"
That's SO funny, Undraa!! And very smart too! My daughter isn't THAT competitive, but I do use a similar trick, like pretending her brother is playing along and telling me something -that's wrong- when I want her to participate. More often than not, she can't pass up the chance to say it right.
On the train to ml country, my daughter and I came up with a spontaneous word game: She'd make up nonsense forest names and I'd say a real word of a place that would have those things, sometimes also funny. Examples: car forest - parking lot hamburger forest - McDonalds lighthouse forest - dangerous coastline book forest - library
Najwa: My eldest sings and verbalizes his figures/cars stories in an invented language that has English sounds and Italian accent. Is it his way to disconnect from his multilingual world?

Adam Beck: Najwa, it's hard to respond to your question without knowing the full details of the situation. I suggest starting a thread at a suitable board and offering as much information about these circumstances as you can.

Marisa: Merry Christmas to you, Adam, and to everyone! I also hope 2021 is better than this year we're about to end. It shouldn't be too difficult, right?
