Same genes, different strokes

paint-brushIt’s true that no two children are the same. Behaviour, personality, and temperament ensure no two kids are alike, and you don’t need to look further than your own family for evidence of this.

Most parents of more than one child will observe their vastly different personalities. I remember when I was pregnant with my second child, a mother of two told me to expect the exact opposite of my first-born. And that prediction turned out to be accurate.  In my latest article, published on Essential Kids, I explore their contrasting personalities and temperaments.

Can you relate to my experiences? Are your kids similar, or worlds apart? Do you adopt a different parenting approach for one? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
