Compromised or Competent: Analyzing Twin Children’s Social Worlds
From conception twin children are compelled to share their environment and its resources. This includes social resources of attention from, and social interac- tions, with others. This special issue specifically focuses on the social world of twin children and addresses three key questions: • How is the social world of twins different from that of a single-born child? • Does the twin situation limit social experience and compromise social development? • Does the twin situation enhance social experience and facilitate social competency? The issue includes studies from a range of disciplines, including psychology, sociology, anthropology and behavioral genetics, and utilizes a range of approaches to the analysis and understanding of the processes and outcomes of twin children’s social experiences.
