My twin daughters are starting kindergarten in 2 weeks and this was the perfect book to wake me from my self-congratulatory state of bliss at having survived infancy and toddlerhood. Christina Baglivi Tinglof does a great job of even-handedly covering what rigors lie ahead, while offering common-sense advice that effectively assuages a parent's fears: establish rules such as No Tattling (punish the tattler!), No Name Calling (keep kids separated until they write an apology!); never punish both w ...more

What an awesome book for parents of multiples! Although says that this is geared towards older kids, I think I am reading it at the perfect age (mine are 2), makes me realize that parenting multiples vs. singletons is a whole different ball game b/c of individuality issues. Since I shared a room with my sister, my parents tried to give all of us equal parents, and even the family down the street just celebrated 3 of their kids different birthdays on one day (today), then I just thought that we c ...more

Not really my parenting style (suggests time outs and banning "tattling" instead of encouraging truth-telling), but there are some interesting studies referenced about educating twins.

Finally! A book about school age multiples! Most books talk about babies to toddlers, and then have a quick chapter for the rest of their childhood.

Really goood book. Some of it was just silly but a lot of info and stuff to think about. More focus on twins than triplets.

I have a ways to go before I parent school-age multiples, but I'm filing this away for future reference!
