Teen Twins

Follow me on:

Having teen twins means twice the challenges - but also twice the fun! Going through puberty, learning to drive, planning for the future, growing up.... with multiples experiencing it all simultaneously, there is no opportunity for parents to learn from hindsight! But there are also benefits to having a twin when you are a teenager ... companionship and friendship through the tough times. The teen years are also a time when children explore and define who they are, and who they want to be. That can be difficult for twins and multiples, who are often defined by who they are in relation to their co-multiples. That can lead to rebellion and experimentation with dangerous activities.
