What do I have to do?. How do I use Zapatoons. 3 essential tips for preoccupied parents::
Zapatoons is not a chore...It´s just watching cartoons!. They don´t need to finish the playlist or watch it entirely every single day. Simply, if they are going to watch cartoons, make it in English and adapted to their age.
The switch must be complete. Under no circumstance you should play any cartoons in Spanish, never!. In this, we need your help. The first days will be more difficult and you could hear complaints, but from then on they will get used and that problem will disappear forever. If you alternate languages, there will be always complaints because they will find Spanish more comfortable. The best option is no option. At home, cartoons must be in English. If your child starts with Zapa when barely a year old, they won't notice it and it will be really, really easy.
My kids don´t want to watch the cartoons in English, they complaint. Don´t worry, it´s ok, don´t force them. If they don´t want to watch it, it´s fine. You let it playing while they play, draw...you´ll see how little by little they´ll watch them and accept they are in English. For this to work it depends on your perseverance, but do not force them or struggle with them. Everything should be natural and progressive. Remember, at home cartoons always in English with Zapa!
