Being a parent of identical twins can be a wild ride, but it also has some pretty amazing perks. In speaking with my mom, she'll tell you about the instant bond she saw, which was heartwarming. But did you know that being a twin can lead to better problem-solving skills? The communication they develop at a young age may lead to more advanced skills than a single child. It leads to developing a heightened ability to work through tricky situations and be more advanced in academics. It is a compelling case for the upsides of twinhood.
From connection building to increased confidence, several positives come from being a twin, so I invite everyone to consider other advantages. Although it's not all smooth sailing - the results could be remarkable!
