It is for parents and teachers who are bilinguals themselves and also for monolinguals who want to know more; for those with some intuitive understanding of bilingual situations and for those who are starting from the very beginning. The style of the book is to pose questions that people most often ask about raising bilingual children. Straightforward answers follow, written in direct, plain language. The book deals with family questions, educational questions, language issues and particularly focuses on the problems that arise. The answers to the questions will raise awareness of what challenges may be faced as bilingual family life develops and what decisions have to be made.
