  • You got to correct very early on, this is why a good education from the start is a must, I never had to correct mine.

  • When it is appropriate to correct him. I have also repeated what he said inappropriate, in an appropriate way. But, appropriate English starts at home.

  • LOL I don't have to.  My 18 year old dd is a grammar nazi and has corrected her English teachers on numerous occasions.  She will be starting university in September and her major will be English.
