Emotionally Healthy Twins

Emotionally Healthy Twins

Most parents try to treat their twins as individuals, but most unwittingly undermine their best intentions because they lack a practical set of guidelines for raising emotionally healthy multiples.

Drawing on her unique experience as a twin, the mother of twins, and as a psychotherapist, Dr. Joan A. Friedman outlines the seven key concepts for helping twins develop into self-realized, unique individuals and offers parents specific strategies for each stage in their children's growth.

From how to set up the nursery to handling playdates and extracurricular activities, from deciding on same or separate classroom education to encouraging grandparents and other family members to think beyond the pair to see individuals, Emotionally Healthy Twins will become the standard reference for parenting twins.

Many of the books about parenting twins are heavily concentrated on the physical aspects of pregnancy and the logistical aspects of coping with two babies. Few take such an in-depth look into the psychology of twins and the intricacies of their relationship. Joan A. Friedman, Ph.D., is a psychotherapist specializing in twins, as well as a twin and a mother of twins. That combination of experience led her to develop a philosophy that "parents and others need to treat twins as two separate children who happen to have been born at the same time." She explains the concept of "the twin mystique," and how it impacts the way that twins are perceived by society, and sometimes by their own parents.
