This is the second edition of the best-selling book that has provided practical advice to thousands of parents who want their children to grow up bilingual. It still gives parents up-to-date information and advice they need to make informed decisions about what language policy to adopt with their children. This new edition also looks at cases of single-parent families with bilingual children, as well as schooling and bi-literacy issues. The authors help parents identify the factors that will influence their decision to bring up their children as bilinguals. The second part consists of case studies of bilingual families, which illustrate a wide range of different solutions . The third part is an alphabetical reference guide providing answers to the most frequently asked questions about bilingualism. Bringing up bilingual children is a challenge and this book helps parents meet that challenge.
