Bringing up children bilingually raises all sorts of issues: Where do you speak which language? Will learning 2 languages simultaneously cause children to fall behind in language development? How can you encourage the child to speak the 'weaker' language? What happens when your children can speak a language that you can't?
Mummy Do That (a German living in Glasgow, Scotland) is hosting a carnival packed full of posts from people bringing up children who are learning to speak two (or more) languages. She has pulled together a dozen posts about all sorts of aspects of having bilingual children in her post It's A Carnival! Raising Children Bilingually.
This is the first of a series of carnivals gathering together posts from people raising children bilingually which provides a unique opportunity to read about the real life experiences of parents with kids who can (or can't!) speak more than one language.
