Life in Laos through the lens of a diplomatic wife raising twin toddlers.
As a mother of twins I can speak from two and a half years of experience about nature vs. nurture. I’ve watched two children born of the same womb, raised and nurtured in exactly the same manner, form into two completely different human beings. One trait passed down from me to my daughter is an exacting tendency to be very precise. In this photo, she is taking crayons one-by-one and arranging them next to each other in a straight row, taking pains to adjust each one so that they are as level with the other as possible. For a two-year old, this takes quite some time to do and I have a video to prove it. On the other hand, my son can concentrate on how the wheels of a toy car works for a surprisingly long stretch, but he has nothing to do with putting things away or how they are arranged. In fact, he prefers to throw everything into the air and leave things where they land. We definitely did not nurture him to do this!
