That's my whole point Reasonvemotion...you don't know....no one can know for sure. So why do you say Kayla would 'overcome her co-dependency and strike out on her own' if she continued seeing her therapist, if you don't really know?
They may be born on the same day but twins are unique, individual people and it’s inevitable that some day soon one will make the team, win the science award, or receive acceptance at a prestigious college. Puberty is now in full force and menstruation will occur if not already. I think separate beds, or separate rooms, if it is possible, should now be considered.
As this discussion is bordering on sensitive information and Kayla's privacy the reason I said "I dont know" is due to further information would be needed to expand on an opinion of the questions you ask and as I was discussing exclusively K's case, I dont feel it appropriate to discuss online, she has her therapist for that.
But reasonvemotion....every question I asked cannot be answered with any certainty no matter if we knew all the specifics or not...whether we took action or not. There is just no telling what outcome would come about with whatever method we tried. That is my point. Don't you understand, when it comes to psychology, there is no way of knowing if it will make for a better outcome or not. We might as well use a horoscope or myer briggs test to determine the 'correct' action to take.
Human behavior is a crap shoot....however...if the truth be told....in all honesty...
Honesty is the best policy....at least when it comes to admitting that no one has all the answers. Just suppose if we said, "Psychology believes that separating twins is the correct action for their well being...however, we don't have enough evidence of that yet."
I think eventually, people would build up more realistic expectations, and know that any action we take will not necessarily result in a better outcome. And if our goal is a mentally healthy civilization, then I think being honest about this is not only practical but it is also good for the awareness of one's surroundings as it applies to our gullibility of following authority blindly...without question.
Psychology is not an exact science. Any pretense that it claims to have in an authoritarian manner simply is dishonest. Not only is it dishonest, it is downright dangerous to our well being as it is divisive to our natural state of being. It creates anxiety where there is none by making us believe in a dishonest generalization in order to control society by cookie cutter fashion. It creates anxiety because it dulls our senses and makes us suspicious of each others motives...it does this by taking perfectly innocent and/or natural human action/behavior, and categorizing it as abnormal. This leaves the suspicious a good excuse to do exactly what they have always desired...and that is to have their authority control their world.
