Boys will be Boys – really?

What do you think? Are we excusing certain behaviors exhibited by our boys – just because they are boys? I appreciate the opinion of this ‘girl mom’ Lean Green Mommy Machine and would love to hear what you think.

“I am the mother of 4 daughters and no sons so many would deem me unqualified to comment on all things related to parenting boys. To be fair, there are many aspects that I probably can’t relate to. I do, however, run an in-home daycare and my general life is about kids even apart from my work.

I do believe there are differences ingrained in each gender that naturally come through. But I also believe within each gender there are various personalities and quirks that can’t be pinned to one gender or another. I don’t believe in boy toys or girl toys or gender specific color.

All that being said, there is one thing that I hear from parents and grandparents of boys that gets my hackles up. Boys Will Be Boys.”
