    Good luck with writing this, please come back and share your finished pip, I always find them interesting and feel that it was a fantastic project, I defiantly learned a lot about the comparison of twins while doing my pip!

    Thank you Code :thanks: , I appreciate your comments.  I will definitely post the results up.   If you don't mind me asking, what  did you learn in the comparison of twins, in your PIP?

    That's ok, I did my IRP for community and family on it too, most of the people in SOC were in CAFS too so we all just did the same topic so we could just expand on the PIP. To be honest it was a long time ago, it is posted in the 18+ forum I believe, somewhere! I'll see if I can find it and link you.

    I found the link but the copy no longer exists sorry, I know it's on my old computer, so when I'm at my unit next I'll try getting it off of it.

    Hey Code, thanks that would be great. 
      I just read the 'Please answer - research project' post from 2009 and wanted to emphasise that I will send the results also I would love to become a member of the forum.  As a twin myself I understand how tiresome it can be to answer the repetitive questions, (even though it doesn't occur as much with boy/girl twins-until they realise your twins! ^_^ )
    -especially 'what it is like to be a twin?', I would love to answer it but I have no idea what it's like to be a singleton, being a twin to me is normal. 
    Anyway to get to the point, I know a lot of questionnaires and surveys would be posted on here, so I do really appreciate the answers.
