i am feeling bad. splitting up my twins

okay ever since i gave birth my twins have been together. for a long time they where in the same bed, then we gave them each there own beds in the same room and they still sometimes sleep together. but anyways they have really started to be bad. and i am not just talking about normal 3 year old things, they get into everything, they have broken both of there beds, so all thats left is the mattress, they have broken off all the doors off there dresser, they broke there door, so last night when they got into something, hubby decided that it would be good to try and brake them apart. so we are going to have one in one room and one in the other. i just feel so bad for splitting them up, but at the same time i cant handle what they do. is it a good idea to split them up. what would you do? and as for the getting into trouble thing, we have tried everything we have put safty lockes and everything and they some how brake them.

  • Split them up. You have to remember that just because they shared your uterus, that does not mean they are the same person. I have twins and always tried to encourage different hobbies/interests. Its tricky to keep them seperate too much as they share a bedroom but i try and encourage them to play independantly as it does reduce the carnage!

    Mine are four next month and start school in September. Its policy here to split up twins when they get to school so it's probably best you try and encourage them to be more independant of eachother as much as you can so to avoid extra difficulties when they start school.

    Best of luck and i hope you find a way of managing this. Don't feel bad at all :o)

  • They are two individuals and should be treated as such. They are not a "set"...they are two people.

    Personally, if it were me, they would have been in their own rooms from the very beginning if available.
