Are your twins or multiples having the same characteristics, personality or intelligence?
They may look alike but are their characters the same? Are they equally introvert or extrovert? Do they have the same talents?
If they are schooling, do you put them in the same class or different?
Mommy was advised by her twins's school principle once (before he retired) that twins should be placed in differnt classes to encourage their individual development. However, she decided not to separate them when she registered them for Standard One in chinese school and pleaded that both her twin boys be put in the same class for easy time management of time table and after school activities schedules. Moreover, one twin is more a leader while the other is more of a follower. If they are separated, they may have separation anxiety and also stressful particulary for the twin who is more dependent on the other twin.
Do you have such encounter? Please share your thoughts.
