Language matters. From the start of communication, how we speak has always mattered. Language seems to be the first to go in today's technological world.
Your children WILL speak as you speak. If you have an accent, your child will likely pick it up. If you always say, “ya'll,” your children will too.

Incorporating specific sayings when communicating with your children makes the correction seem less like a correction and more like a loving comment. Plus, if they rhyme, your kids are more likely to remember them.
