Multilingual Parenting is getting (re)organised!

Multilingual Parenting


Since starting the blog in 2012 I have published more than four hundred articles on my Multilingual Parenting site. 400 articles – that is a lot of posts and Q&As on the topic of raising bilingual children!

With this a significant number of articles, I realise that it may not always be easy to locate the exact piece of advice, knowledge or inspiration you are looking for. Therefore, I have decided to do a site revamp to give it a better structure and make it easier to navigate. It will still have the same look and feel, but you will hopefully be able to find what you are searching for more easily.

I am currently also creating an ebook based on my From the diary of a bilingual mother series. While I am working on the website and ebook (in addition to continuing with my coaching), naturally, there will be less time for writing new blog posts, so bear with me – normal blogging routine will resume before the end of the year.

The Q&As will continue as normal, with two new ones published every week – new questions are welcome, though the waiting time is currently about two months, so please make sure to check the Q&A archive before submitting your query. Thank you to my fellow Family Language Coaches for working with me to answer all the questions coming in!



Rita is an author, Family Language Coach, blogger and speaker, who was born into a bilingual family on the Swedish-speaking west coast of Finland. After studying languages in Finland and Germany she worked as a university teacher, translator, interpreter and manager of multinational teams. Rita is now a full-time writer and coach and has been living in the U.K. since 1998. Rita is the mother of two grown-up multilingual daughters, who are the inspiration for her book: “Bringing up a Bilingual Child”, an easy-to-read guide for parents, where she navigates the reader across the “Seven Cs of Multilingual Parenting: Communication, Confidence, Commitment, Consistency, Creativity, Culture and Celebration”. Currently English and Swedish are Rita’s main languages, but she instantly switches to Finnish or German or to her Finland-Swedish dialect when the opportunity presents itself (and when push comes to shove, she can communicate in a very basic Punjabi). Rita is the creator and driving force of this website, and she gives talks and holds workshops for parents and teachers on the topic of bilingual children. She also coaches families on how to make the most of their languages and raise their children to become confident speakers of the chosen languages.
