    English and Scottish Ballads (The Poetry Bookshelf)

    One of your biggest jobs as a parent of multiples is no bigger than simply talking to your children individually and requiring that they respond to you individually as well. The benefits of this kind of communication can be enormous, in terms of the relationship you develop with each child, in terms of their language development, and eventually in terms of their sense of individuality, too.
    Pamela Patrick Novotny (20th century)
