Getting started and staying motivated with raising children in several languages begins with the parent's own passion and enthusiasm for the task.  If the parents are not devoted to the process, the results will show in the language level of the child.  Where does this passion come from?  Often a parent wants to be sure her child can communicate with relatives in another country. Sometimes a parent wants to guarantee cultural links to his family.  Yet other parents are interested in the child's ability to adapt socially.  There are a myriad of reasons to be passionate about one's languages, and all contribute to the enthusiasm parents have for choosing and staying consistent with a strategy for raising their children mutilingually.
