Pretty heavy-handed preaching that if you don't do everything you can to treat your twins as separate individuals, they'll turn out messed up. Some of her advice was pretty obnoxious, such as to tell people, "We're having two babies!" "You mean twins?" "Yes, but we are thinking of them as separate individuals and hope you will too. By the way, if you're thinking of getting them a present, make sure it doesn't match." Although your friends are weirded out, you should treasure the gift you're giving your twins: individuality.
Your twins should have separate rooms, separate clothes in separate dressers, separate activities/sports/etc, separate friends, separate classrooms, and as much "alone time" with their parents as possible. All of this sounds kind of idealistic--not everyone is going to be able to provide all of this. But if you can't, your twins are probably going to be messed up. And if your twins love each other and have a unique bond, watch out--it's probably a sign that they haven't bonded enough with you and they are too close to each other.
I really wonder what some other adult twins would think of this book...
