Emotionally Healthy Twins: A New Philosophy for Parenting Two Unique Children
This book is a guide from pregnancy through young adulthood. The author is a twin, a mother of twins and a psychotherapist specialising in the treatment of emotional issues of multiples. She discusses seven key parenting guidelines to help the twins develop into unique individuals and offers parents strategies for each stage of their children's growth, from birth to young adulthood
Some of the issues discussed are:
Coping with the stress that comes with caring for two babies at once
Recognising that each twin is a unique individual
Giving each child important "alone time" with parents
Fostering each child's separate friendships and interests
Deciding on the same or different classroom education.
In this book, renown paediatrician and sleep authority, Dr Marc Weissbluth combines specialised advice for parents of twins with his tried-and-true sleep-training methods to show exhausted parents how to get their babies to sleep on their own, stay asleep and sleep regularly. This essential step-by-step guide to establishing good sleep patterns reveals how to build healthy habits in twins' natural slumber cycles, including:
how healthy sleep differs from "junk" sleep
techniques of sleep training for new parents
the five ingredients of healthy sleep and why daytime sleep is different from night time sleep but equally important to good health
why it's crucial for babies to master the ability to fall asleep unassisted, without protest or crying, and how to help them do so
essential tips for synchronising your twins' sleep schedules
how to recognise early drowsy cues in your babies so you can catch the sleep wave before it turns into nervous energy that will keep them awake.
