Your twins are starting school and aside from the normal planning involved, you are faced with another big decision. Are you going to keep them in the same classroom or will you separate them in school?

This decision can be a tough one for many parents because generally, there is no clear cut answer. The best advice we can give is to consider the following questions about your twins and the school they will be attending.

Don’t forget to factor your own instincts into this decision. You know your twins better than anyone else and once your questions are answered, you should be able to choose what’s best for them.

Also, keep in mind, what works for your twins one year might not work the next. You should reevaluate whether to keep them together or separate them before the start of every school ear to ensure the best situation for them. The happier they are, the happier you’ll be too!
