Video Of The Week - An Innovative Solution To Tell Apart Identical Siblings  


CCSS 121 Words 1-Minute Listen

Having identical twins is hard enough for most families, so you can only imagine what the parents of these quadruplets in China must have had to face. Not only did they look alike, they also, had identical mannerisms.

Things got only worse when the four recently began school and the teachers had an ever harder time telling them apart. That's when their mother decided to take action. She took the six-year-old boys to a barber who cut out numbers 1, 2, 3 and 4 onto sheets of paper, stuck them onto their heads and cut their hair around them.

Now, the four are simply known by their respective numbers and everyone seems to be happy - At least so far!

      I'm pretty sure I would not want my hair shaved off if I was a twin but it is smart maybe the should have just put name tags

                  If I was a twin with someone, I wouldn't want all my hair to get shaved off!
