The Multilingual Children’s Association has a great list of 10 steps to raising a multilingual child:
- Agree on multilingualism
- Know what to expect and when
- How many languages — what is practical?
- Decide which language system works for you
- Don’t wait — now is the perfect time!
- Declare your intentions
- Establish a support network
- Get relevant materials
- Set your goals, but remain flexible
- Have patience and keep going
