Ok...I want to get more opinions on this matter. I am a manager in a pre-school. We have children from 6 weeks up to Kindergarten. We often have sets of twins....Does anyone think it is absurd to seperate them when they are about 2 1/2 to 3? I think it is in the best interest of the 2 children to be seperated, so that they can create and develop their own set of skills, their own set of friends, their own set of personalities and so forth, and really become known as individuals versus the "twins". I think this is a bad stigma for the children and they need to be seperated for there self confidence, independence and an understanding of ones self versus "the two of them". The reason I am asking is that this mother is INSISTING on leaving them together and can not understand why we think it is so important. I just want to know what others think and as to whether or not I am crazy for being so persistent on this matter. Thank you all.
