5 year old gets upset very easy she is very clingy and doesn't catch on as quickly as her twin could she have a learning or behavioral issue?

Possible: Tough to say, but most commonly, early behavioral issues are first diagnosed by the parents. Studies have all shown the importance of early diagnosis and intervention also.

Touching of privates: No, you should not be worried at this age, as this is just normal childhood curiosity. It would need to be STRONGLY discouraged should it. By the way, you don't indicate the sex of your child, but I'm going to assume it is a boy. ...Read more

Create obstacles: to pulling on the tubes. You can wrap the site with gauze, cover with clothing that the other twin cannot get into readily, secure the proximal end of the tube to a layer of clothing and place another layer over it. If you are dealing with nasal tubing, you will have to keep them far enough apart that the twin cannot reach her sister's tubing. Always be sure YOU can get to and inspect the tubes. ...Read more
