Why Do Parents Tend To Speak Only English Language To Their Kids?

21

Overtime, I've observed that couples tend to speak only "English Language" to their new born baby/kids while they grow. I once had a discussion with my girlfriend regarding what language our kids will learn and speak at home. I was surprised she opt for "English". I immediately rebuke her; telling her, they will learn and speak our local dialect and they will go to school and learn English language. Even if the couples are of different tribe, their kids should be able to speak the local dialect of either the Mother or the Father. I bet, in the next 50-100 years some local dialect would have gone into extinction. Do couples see their new born babies as "Foreigners (White)" because of their "skin colour"? Do couples think their baby/ies can only understand English Language? So, why is it difficult for Couples to speak and teach their local dialect to their kids?
