Twins or twins? Almost all people tend to confuse both terms, even saying that it is the same. Twins or twins are different because of a fundamental fact. The twins are born from the same embryo and share the same genome, while the twins do not. However, both (both twins and twins) share the fact that they are born of the same pregnancy and therefore are special, taking into account that the normal for the human being is the birth of an individual by gestation.
Twins occur when an embryo is divided into two and gives rise to two different bodies. The twins instead are different embryos that develop in the same gestation and share genes, but not as directly as the twins.
The stimulation of twins or twins
As each child has a development and goes at a different pace, in the case of twins or twins is the same. Because he was born in the same birth, it does not mean that his development will be the same. On the contrary, they usually show a very different development. Although both generally present the same age of development, it is common to see how one of the babies presents a development, for example motor, more accelerated than the other, and on the contrary one of them presents a developed social affective development, while the other does not.
When we work with twin babies or twins, we will also take into account that they have one more stage in their cognitive development compared to babies born from a simple birth. This stage is called'period of twin identity', and appears during the first two years of children's lives, generating a delay in their development. But that delay is not something that you have to worry about, because it usually recovers naturally around six to seven years.
This is because from birth, the needs of babies are usually met not individually, but as a couple. If a baby cries, usually meets the demand of both, and not in a particular way. In general, parents of twins have many difficulties in considering each particular child as a claimant of a specific need.
How to educate twin babies
And that is why this type of behavior, by parents usually generates a small difficulty in the development of the twins. Hence, there is:
- Respect the baby's individuality. From the point of view of the stimulation we must also perform differentiated sessions, since each one will present a different development. Taking into account your age of development and your pace. Otro - Another aspect to take into account is that the first acquisitions in relation to learning such as
learning to walk and talk, usually appear in a parallel way, because children stimulate each other.- When a baby begins to crawl, crawl or walk the other has a model to look at and that motivates him to do something he could do. Del - In the same way, when one begins to babble, the other repeats his babbling, so that sometimes it seems that they are responding to each other. This is a moment that hay should be used to encourage language with them
. En - In contrast to other types of acquisitions or learning, such as fine motor perception etc. There may be differences, in which
one baby or child will excel over the other .In general there are
four stages of twin development: 1.The twin fusion (0 to 2 years): at this moment they are very similar and their needs are met at the same time. La 2. Complementarity (after two years): each one begins to develop their own potentials.3. The first phase of autonomy (towards six years): the school allows each child to acquire a complete individual behavior.
4. The second phase of autonomy: adolescence. Taking into account these aspects the development of the twins or twins, it does not have to be as different as that of two brothers of different ages, only that we will have twice as much work.
