    Talk to it in English, Nick. Just talk to it. Children acquire language through immersion.

    Reminded me of a book I read called " A child called IT ". It was about one of America's worst child abuse cases in the seventies - the mother starved, knived and even burned her child. She wouldn't call him by his name but referred him as "it" instead.
