Boys can be boys

Boys2 An article in the Washington Post put me in mind of a post Allen did a few months ago. As the older sister of two boys, I remember how my quiet days of reading and playing with every variety of doll (baby, Barbie, paper) suddenly gave way to a household of loud car noises and impromptu wrestling matches. Remembering his own boyhood, Conn Iggulden wrote The Dangerous Book for Boys with his brother Hal. In the Post article, Conn wrote:

It's about remembering a time when danger wasn't a dirty word. It's safer to put a boy in front of a PlayStation for a while, but not in the long run. The irony of making boys' lives too safe is that later they take worse risks on their own...Boys are different from girls.

Indeed, the very first chapter of the very first book of the Bible says God created two sexes, male and female, each designed to reflect His glory in a unique way. Here's to the bold, rough, loud glory of boys!

Seen in Parents magazine, in response to the question, "Would you buy a baby doll for your son?": from 'antijenn' -- "My son was gentle with his doll for an hour. Then all he wanted to do was sling it around the room by its head!"

Exactly.
