5. Do Let Them Develop Different Interests

This tip for raising fraternal twins is similar to putting your children in separate classes, in that you want to encourage separation- not from you, but from each other. As a child I remember many times when I only wanted to spend time with my twin.

I would always ask my parents where he was, but they always separated us for a significant amount of time to ensure that we would grow up with our own identities. Encouraging your children to develop their own interests is very important. Maybe it will seem like a hassle, driving one child to karate and another to ballet, but in the end it will be worth it- especially since you also want your children to have their own group of friends, values, and ideas down the line, regardless of what their twin thinks.
