In my own little psychology experiment, also called my life, I have found that girls ARE different than boys. Based on my sample size of 6 children (3 boys, 3 girls) there are distinct differences. We went to the dinosaur exhibit at the zoo and so I brought in the plastic dinosaurs from the sand box, washed them off and gave them to the girls to play with. There was a lot of “Roarrring”, a lot of dinosaurs attacking one another with complimentary sound effects but when the girls were done they wanted to put them to bed…with their blankies. So I found a bunch of old wash rags and we “tucked-in” all the dinosaurs, singing them each a show tune, as is our bedtime routine.
