A Tip from SomeTwins
Hi there. We're a pair of babies...a brother and sister...and we want to remind you about something important. You probably are much older than we are, but you used to be a baby, too, so we think that you'll understand. 

Here it is. Everybody needs to be liked, and accepted, and treated nicely. We sure are, and most likely you were, too, when you were little babies. Doesn't it feel good to be loved?

Well something happens when babies become kids and they go to school. Some of them are not treated as nicely as they used to be. They're teased, and not chosen for teams, and left by themselves when everyone else is playing. They become sad. No wonder! 

These kids may look different, and some of them may act different, but every single one of them needs the same things that we do. They need to have friends, and to feel like they belong, and to feel like they're understood. 

So here's our tip. Don't tease other kids. If you don't understand them, just ask them to tell you about themselves. You'd be surprised to find out that all kids are pretty neat, and just like you in so many ways...in fact, in more ways than they are different. 

Some grownups say that the we're like two peas in a pod. When you come to think about it, we all are, aren't we? Peas in a giant pod. We sure hope that you'll get to know every single pea in the pods of your life, and find out what it is that makes each of them so special.

Thanks for visiting us!
