Wow, I wish my mom would play WoW. Having said that, I think that getting family members involved in WoW is a great idea. I can see it being a problem in a hardcore raiding guild, but to just have fun and spend time with family you may or may not see on a regular basis is great. I've tried on multiple occassions to get both my mom and my sister to play video games with me, neither are very interested (though I did recently get them into Guitar Hero). As for advice, I'm a relative noob to World of Warcraft too, having got the game for christmas, and all I can say is be patient. I came from playing other MMOs where I was end game and well geared, and then coming in fresh to a game where the majority of the player population has been endgame for over a year or possibly multiple years is tough. I have almost 250 hours on my first character and I'm level 53. It'll just take you a long time to get to endgame. But don't forget to read the quests as you get them, Blizzard did an amazing job of including lots of lore and comedy into the quests, and thats one of the main reasons I've enjoyed leveling in a new MMO that I am sadly very behind in.
