More than just parenting advice...

With 4 year old twins that keep me on the run, I've read quite a few books looking for explanations and answers to uniquely twin issues. This is the first book I've found that actually discusses parenting issues unique to twins. Other books have been full of the same advice you'd get in any parenting book even though they market themselves as "twins" books. Don't buy this book looking for all the answers to your questions because you won't find those in any book, but it does give some good insight into issues that I'd never even thought of. I'll be able to plan for the situations which will inevitably arise with my girls now that I've read this book - rather than just getting confronted with them and having to make it up as I go. I'd highly recommend this book above all other "twins" parenting books I've read.

watching my girls grow up

I bought this book as a follow up to Ganon's TWINS! My daughters just had their first birthdays so we're jumping the gun a bit with "Raising Twins" but my wife and I are already getting answers to many of the things we've been wondering about - such as dressing the girls and handling their birthday parties and there is a lot of very good information about schooling and socializing for twins all the way through their teen years. The conversations with twins themselves from six year olds through twins in their teens and early twenties are fun and in some cases very touching. I recommend this book without reservation.

Thank you for writing this book!

This is a book where the subject has been well researched and well written. I enjoyed it so much and was so encouraged about my ability to raise our twins. I loved the stories about other's experiences. All the stories and explanations of my little one's behavior makes it so much easier for us. Our twins are a joy, and Dr. Pearlman has helped me feel that it is not such a daunting task to raise them. Again, thank you!

Best Book on Twins

As a parent of twins, I can tell you that this book is the only one that allows me to use it as a reference book as they contine to grow up. I love the twin talks. The book is well written and easy to read; it's the only one on the market that really makes sense about the pracitcal approach to working with my twin boys.

finally-a book that looks at twins from grade school to high

I was looking for co-author Ganon's book TWINS! for my niece who is pregnant with twins, when we found this treasure. I have twins (a boy and a girl - age 11), and they thumbed through the book, going straight to the interviews with various sets of twins. We all got a real kick out of it and I have already found a lot of thoughtful information- particularly on the question of twins balancing their individual and twin identities. Bravo-finally a book that goes well beyond the pre school years. I also recommend Ganon's other book TWINS for twin pregnancy and the first year. I will be ordering both for x-mas presents for friends.
