 Good luck raising a half white have hispanic child. I'm puerto rican dominican irish and scottish and not welcomed into either community I'mm actually thinking of leaving this groupd because of it.

Raise your child how you want but I say embrace you're child is mixed, teach your child BOTH CULTURES. It will better them asa person and you'll raise not only a bilingual person, but an open minded person

Keep both cultures present in your baby's life, music, food and language.

My daughter is 3 and I speak both languages to her. Both cultures are present. She's half black half mexican. :-)

Good luck.

I speak Spanish one whole day. Then English the next day.
