I am the father of a five year old girl. My wife is the cousin of a woman who has five year old triplet girls. Like my daughter they are in kindergarten. Unlike my daughter, they are having a horrible time. Last year in pre-k they basically did nothing while in school, and that includes very little eating at lunchtime. School lasts ten months here in NY and after ten months had accomplished practically nothing. They are all in different classrooms as the paretns wanted them separated. They showed almost no signs of participation in the three dozen or more activities they were graded on. They wouldn't speak. They would cry. One had her back turned towards the class and teacher for part of the year. This year is not much better. One child is now up to "whispering" when called upon. I have seen these girls on numerous occasions --family functions and the like-- and they have very little contact with others. They won't play with others most times. They are in their own little world. Their eating habits are horrible. Most sweets and junk food. The first question I have: is this common among triplets? I love their parents but I wonder if they really see what's going on? And how can these kids possibly be moved on to 1st grade when they have accomplished almost nothing the last 18 months?
