When I was expecting our twins, Christina's 'Double Duty' was hands-down my favorite text. Now that our twins are five and a half and preparing to enter kindergarten, Christina's writing once again has become my go-to resource via her new book, 'Parenting School-Age Twins and Multiples.' Skillfully weaving the latest scholarly research on multiples with invaluable anecdotal revelations from numerous twin-blessed families, Christina has created a resource our family will be referring to again and again in the years to come. The text not only acknowledges the unique dynamic within identical and fraternal twins' interactions and relationships, but addresses the additional components of gender match or difference. With objectivity and respect for varied families and the individuals within them, Christina takes on the often touchy issue of school classroom placement---thoughtfully sharing both studies and multiple multiples families' experience (including her own) in a way that provides assistance, insight and validation. Can you tell we like this book? To date, I've been happy to loan (or give away) many of my books that I read while preparing for our lives as twin parents to others who've found themselves in a doubly-expecting situation. Christina takes her latest book right on up through life with twin teens, so needless to say, 'Parenting School-Age Twins and Multiples' is a book we'd recommend (and plan on revisiting repeatedly!) for the long haul.
