Used, very good condition
If you’re wondering what it feels like to grow up and be a twin or a triplet then this is the book for you.
Identical triplet Kari Ertresvåg interweaves psychologist advice and observations on life as a multiple with hilarious anecdotes from her own, covering the logistically challenging early years, the perplexities of teenagerhood, and the clarity that comes as an adult.
With humour and honesty, Ertresvåg lays bare what it feels like to grow up as a twin or a triplet—covering everything from what it’s like to share friends, an underwear drawer or one’s birthday, how to deal with incessant comparisons and layers of confusion, to what it's like to enjoy a life-sustaining bond yet still needing some time apart from one’s twin or co-triplets—to jump-start reflections for parents and ultimately make life easier for twins and triplets.
Kari Ertresvåg talks as a triplet child, cutting to the heart of the question parents of multiples ask—how do I foster individuality in my children while also nurturing the bond between them—with her heartfelt, honest and thought-provoking Parent like a Triplet.
Here is the book that The International Council of Multiple Birth Organisations says you should “keep on your bookshelf, because you will find yourself going back to it many times as your multiples grow and develop into adults”.
