    Smile on the swing

    Hi,
    I'm a new member and I'm pleased to find such a forum !
    I'm french but talk english to my kids but there are sometimes sentence I am not sure to say the correct way ! Can you help me please ?

    like, at the playpark:
    "do you want to have a go on the swing, to sit onto it?"
    "do you want me to push you once more? "
    "shall I push you from the back ?" (if I stand behind her)

    thanks

    Can I ask you quite often things like this on this forum or is it kept for more serious things ?

    I for one welcome this sort of question, the more serious things are often too hard for me to answer.

    What could possibly be a more important topic than anything having to do with raising your child? Ask away!
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
