RODRIGUES, Gabriela Adamatti  and  HINTZ, Helena Centeno. Bond in single-parents families with twins. Pensando fam. [online]. 2013, vol.17, n.2, pp. 48-60. ISSN 1679-494X.

This study presents the context of living single-parent families with twins, through a qualitative, single study case, which family therapy was performed in a systemic approach. The family analyzed consists about a young mother of twin daughters with two years old, living in a shelter. This way, arises the interest of investigation: a) how the bond is established between parent with no spouse and twins; and b) if the bond established with each child can influence the way that the parent takes care of each one of them. Moreover, it is also important to think about the bonds that can be built outside the family.
