Encouraging Twins’ Personal Identities | Mom Minute

I get asked a lot of questions about how it is raising twins, especially identical twin girls.Twin IdentitiesMany of you may not know that my husband is actually a twin, growing up with a fraternal twin sister. When we found out we were going to have Brooklyn and Bailey, my husband set out a bunch of rules of how to raise them based upon how he felt being a twin as a child.

He loves his twin sister a lot, and often confuses my name with hers in conversations about his childhood, but he said it was hard being lumped into everything together, being called “the twins” and having to share birthdays, etc.

Now that my girls are nearly 14, on this episode of The Mom’s View’s Mom Minute we decided to share with you how we encouraged the girls to have their own set of friends and personalities…

Happy Parenting!
