2. Do Not Put Them in the Same Classes

Of the many things I am so thankful my mother did growing up, one of them was that she demanded we stay in separate classes in school. As a child I couldn’t really understand it at the time, but looking back and seeing how other parents went about raising fraternal twins, I am so happy she did.

Putting your children in separate classes in school is important because it helps them grow, develop, and succeed on their own, without living in the shadow of their twin. Although some people consider fraternal twins to be completely different than identical twins or other multiples, they are really exactly the same when it comes to behavior and development. As a child I relied on my twin for so many things, but being in separate classes all through school allowed me to be my own person- which is crucial when you are a twin.
