Re: S/O boys will be boys

I think boys in general do have biological differences that come from nature and they are a little more active and geared towards different things but I don't think that excuses bad behavior. The expectations are the same for all my kids. I think behavior comes from a combo of nature and nurture just like many other things. There are boys that are more energetic and who need physical input than a typical girl but there are ways to harness it in appropriate ways. My son actually does not like getting dirty. My youngest girl is the one who enjoys getting messy the most out of my kids. My son is my most active and does enjoy stereotypical boy things and he went through and aggressive phase as a toddler but I did not excuse his behavior because he was I boy. I worked to correct it.
