I have a set of fraternal twin girls. One is brunette and darker complected and one is blonde and very fair complected. They are going to start Kindergarten next year and we have been thinking about whether or not to try seperate classrooms in school. I don't know if there will be 2 Kindergarten classes yet, and we haven't registered yet, but this has been a concern for us. The girls still sleep in the same room and often in the same bed. Sam seems to have anxiety about being away from Rachel. She doesn't like to sleep in seperate beds, or let Rachel spend the night away from her. (We are trying to allow them to each have seperate time that they are the center of attention and sometimes let one stay with a gandparent and bring the other one home). They have been involved in sports, but always on the same team. It seems that if one gets into trouble the other is close behind, we have found that it works best with soccer if one plays and the other subs in for them, if they are both on the bench together they get into mischeif, but Samantha seems anxious if she is away from Rachel in an unfamiliar situation. Should I keep them together to try to lessen the stress of the transition into school, or let them be apart to try to foster their independance from each other? Anyone else have experience with this, I could really use some advice.
