Bilingual by Choice: Latino Parents' Rationales and Strategies for Raising Children with Two Languages.
Schecter, Sandra R.; And Others
Bilingual Research Journal, v20 n2 p261-81 Spr 1996
Ten Hispanic families in which bilingual parents had chosen to maintain the use of Spanish in the home were interviewed. Explicit questions about rationales for this choice elicited answers related to instrumental benefits of bilingualism, but analyses of interviews as life stories revealed the necessity of repeated reaffirmation of this commitment under changing life circumstances. Contains 24 references. (Author/SV)
