I have 8 year old identical twin girls who absolutley love eachother when it comes down to it, in fact they are pretty inseparable. However, they have expressed to me many times how they don't like being twins. They don't like to dress the same, have their hair the same, have the same toys etc. They hate that people can't ever tell them apart, it annoys them to no end. I feel bad for them because I want them to feel lucky to have eachother and realize how special it is to have a twin sister, but no matter how many times I tell them this it doesn't seem to make a difference. I understand it to a point and I feel bad for them that they are having such a hard time finding their own identity despite having complete opposite personalities. Anyone else have this same issue, if so how did you deal with it?
