There’s no denying that growing up as a twin, triplet or more is a unique experience. After all, they have shared a womb and were born as the same time as their sibling – we think that’s pretty special.
Most multiple birth children navigate their way through the teenage years in the same way as any other teenager. In fact, in some ways it can be easier being a multiple birth child as he/she has a sibling that is in the same situation, sharing similar thoughts and emotions.
Although, as a parent it’s worth being mindful that a twin, triplet or more relationship can be a focus of comparisons and competitiveness.
