Overview

Every parent of twins knows that raising them can be full of unique challenges. Getting through the first twelve months may be especially difficult, but that is only the first hurdle. In Raising Twins After the First Year, author Karen Gottesman, a mother of boy-and-girl twins herself, guides parents through the many specific issues they will face as their twins grow from age one to ten. She covers ways to deal with "the terrible two's times two"—potty training, the legitimacy of cryptophasia (twin language), sibling rivalry, managing double mood swings, how to start to give your twins independence, and much more. Completely practical and down-to-earth, Raising Twins After the First Year will be a useful and comforting resource for every parent bringing up twins.
