Do you encourage your children to speak te reo Māori?

The team Reporter from The Bay Chronicle

Hi neighbours - Anton Matthews, father-of-two and owner of a bilingual restaurant, made a pact to himself that he would only speak to his children in te reo Māori until they got their drivers' licenses.

He says that "te reo Māori and Māori culture is part of what makes Aotearoa such a special place and we can't get enough of it".

Do you speak te reo Māori in your home? Do you encourage your children to speak it?
