Double the fun. Double blessing. Double pleasure. The birth of twins is certainly a double dose of joy, but parents of twins admit that it is not always easy. There are certain issues when you have twins. This list looks at some of the toughest moments of having twins, from pregnancy to adolescence. Everyone thinks that twins are best friends.
While this may be true in general, parents of twins often share the other side of the story. Competition between twins starts surprisingly early, and fights can get incredibly intense. The constant cycle of fighting and judging places a burden on parents. Many parents will agree that bickering and competition between twins is one of the hardest things about parenting.
With two children of the same age, there is a lot of pressure on the parents to keep everything equal.
What you do for one, you must do for another. You want them to have equal access to resources and opportunities. And basically you want to deny the appearance of playing favorites or giving advantage to one of the twins over the other. This can become a back-breaking effort, ensuring that everyone gets their turn, gets a fair portion and an equal portion.
