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
