"Twins are certainly a package deal. They come into the world together, and grow up together. So it’s hard for others and us as parents, to acknowledge them as separate individuals. But they are separate individuals! They each have their own quirks, their own strengths, their own talents, and their own personalities."

Here are four ways to help grow their individual personalities: http://ow.ly/ODb2U

As a parent it can be frustrating to sit on the sidelines and watch your child get discouraged in sports.

Unfortunately, we cannot do that, but here are some tips to help them through the rest of the season: http://ow.ly/OCSF0

Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt University
Introduction

Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt is a place of healing and a place of hope for the future. As one of the nation's leading children's hospitals, we treat and help prevent all health issues ranging from colds and broken bones to heart disease and cancer. 

The world-class facilities at Children's Hospital are a testament to our community's dedication to the health of children. Constructed in 2004 and expanded in 2012, our 271-bed hospital is a child-friendly place built on the science of healing.

A building alone does not make a great hospital. Our exceptional medical teams and the generous support of people like you enable us to provide every child who comes to us with the hope of improved health. Children's Hospital is a nonprofit facility. No child who needs our services is denied care on the basis of limited ability to pay.

Many of our doctors and surgeons are nationally recognized researchers who are finding new ways to cure and prevent childhood diseases. Their work preventing and treating premature birth, cancer, heart disease, spina bifida, and many other conditions is an investment in the future. We are at an important crossroads in child health. Our commitment to research and advocacy positions us to bring the promise of good health to children and families in our community and to share that hope with the world.
