Cultivating Separateness In Siblings

CULTIVATING SEPARATENESS IN SIBLINGS!

--Think of them as unique individuals (from the moment of conception/adoption referral)

--Expect to have different feelings for each

--Give each child consistent "alone time" with you

--Avoid the "fair and equal" childhood

--Avoid comparisons and labels (often becomes limiting, self-fulfilling prophesy)

--Encourage children to pursue their own friendships and interests

--Twins should not be expected to be each other's constant companion/surrogate parent
