Sorry, I must sound like a bitter woman! Yes, I had a lot of these unwelcome comments (colleagues, relatives, pediatrician...) that can be really hurtful and make you doubt on top of what is already a difficult task.
Not at all. We all go through this sooner or later, so your comment made me laugh!

Sorry to hear it. We had a few too: my daughter's teacher (who meant well, but suggested we switch to OPOL, so we agreed to disagree and moved on), then colleagues who think we're 'teaching' them, as in a classroom setting instead of playing with them (I can't help but laugh when I think about this one ) or friends who think we're taking it too far. But most people think it's great and told us they wished they could do the same for their children. In the beginning, it may have bothered me more, but now, I just shrug it off.
What's on your mind right now? Just type and hit "Enter" to share it here!
Mayken: Last night, I couldn't think of the ml word for puffin, and my daughter beat me to it, in a cute way: It's Papageitaucher (literally parrot diver) but she said Tauchpapagei (diving parrot).

Amy: It's a relief to hear you're all safe Adam Beck! Mayken, I loved that cute story and I love how your ml structures its words, it is always so much fun and interesting.

Marisa: "Victory moment:" My almost 4-year-old daughter told me yesterday in the ml (rough translation): "mom, there's something wrong with the cartoons, can you fix it, please?"... she was accidentally watching TV in the ML! So I gladly obliged
