  • Not necessarily.. it just depends on how some people see them.. Some parents don't want their sons to cry because that makes them sissys.. Some parents want them to show their feelings.. Therefore, it isn't the sex of the child, its the thoughts of the parents.

  • No, their is a book out there called boys will be boys, you should read it. It explains that the more we make our boys out to be tough, the harder it is for them to get along with others.

  • I don't think hitting should be taken lightly EVER. Crying no because everyone cries. If someone says they don't then they're lying. It is part of the human makeup. I've even seen my cat cry tears (she had a hangnail that got caught). As far as the running/hyper thing this one really bothers me. Teachers, doctors and parents are all quick to label a kid adhd if they get excited in the least bit. So quick to want to be lazy and fix everything with a pill. The same people think they can lose years of fat with a diet pill. Kids have more energy than adults. But hey lets's just drug them up and make them couch potatoes and wonder then why they are fat with type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
