Just a brief comment about the difference between boys and girls.
My wife and I have had 5 children, 3 girls and 2 boys. We noticed a difference between the first two children within the first couple of years after #2. Our first who is a girl and the second who is a boy, showed very different mannerisms, attention levels, wants and needs. For instance, after our son, the second child was born, we noticed how he would shake his crib a lot, bang toys on the sides while verbalizing sound effects, even to step on items in what appeared to be an escape attempt. As he got stronger, he would shake the crib towards the door of his room, which we would keep partially shut, only to get the crib to shut the door and wedged up against it. Eventually, after months of perfecting the “bare footed crib bar climb” we heard the grand finally as he hit the floor. This was about 6 months after he could walk. We graduated him from the crib to a bed earlier than we had expected to. What seemed especially odd was his older sister, who was three years his senior, was still content sitting in her crib, almost without a sound, playing with her toys, feet etc.
Our third child, a girl, was only happy when following the older two, no matter what. She was very competitive and was our earliest walker, at 9 months. Our fourth child, a girl, and our last child, a boy, pretty much followed a similar pattern as the first two. The girl was fairly quiet and the boy was rowdy and had a gift for sound effects. The last two were also quite content to be the two older sisters’ live dolls. Strange thing, even though our youngest son was quite often dressed up in girlie doll clothes in his early years, he turned out exhibiting strong male characteristics?
Of course none of this is anywhere near scientific, but it fits within the stats and certainly proves to us that males and females are different. Putting the two together for most of life’s purposes is a very strong combination.p>Thanks for the article!! br> — Mark Young /p> p>
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
