Boys – from Mars, girls – from Venus
The difference in physiology and psychology
No one will argue that there is a difference between boys and girls. What is the external difference alone? But how else and why do they differ from each other?
It turns out that the representatives of the weaker sex hear and distinguish sounds close to high-frequency ones much better than the representatives of the stronger. This explains the fact that mom will hear the crying of the child through a dream, and dad will sleep peacefully further. But, in turn, a man will quickly understand where the sound comes from. This skill helps the hunter locate future prey.
More girls have wider peripheral vision. They are able to clearly see the space at an angle of 45 degrees up, down, right and left. Nature did this for a reason, because with such an ability it is much easier for any female to make sure that the cubs do not run away and are not in danger. But the boys have the ability to see ahead, into the distance, which in the ancient world also helped them to hunt.
Their speech is also different. In girls, areas in both the left and right hemispheres of the brain are responsible for it, and in boys, only in one of them. Still small men use only three tones in speech, while young women actively use five tones. It is for these reasons that girls are more talkative, which helps females distract, entertain and reassure babies, and young people are more silent, which helps them to hunt again.
At the age of 2 to 3 years, children consciously begin to feel their belonging to a particular sex. They learn role-based behavior, taking an example from their parents. Therefore, the boys start, like dad, messing around with cars and repairing something, and the girls, like mom, cook and play with dolls, which is also explained by maternal instinct.
Due to differences in mindset, at school, representatives of the stronger and weaker sex also do differently. From the first days of school, girls learn better, because their speech is better developed, and boys, feeling themselves dumber against their background, become more noisy and restless. But subsequently, many girls begin to lag behind in those subjects in which spatial imagination is needed, and boys in them, on the contrary, receive more decent grades. Many parents, not knowing such subtleties, scold their children, setting as an example a brother or sister, which in no case should be done.
Now we know that boys and girls differ not only externally, but also internally. Maybe it is not for nothing that there is an opinion that women are from Venus, and men are from Mars? ..
Stereotypes of education

Girls are more emotional
Many mothers notice that young girls often change their moods: from sad to funny, from friendly to sad – unlike boys who are more likely to “go with the flow.”
They argue and reproach more often
Girls begin to speak earlier and, due to certain developmental features, they acquire verbal skills faster and better. Yes, that’s good, on the one hand. On the other hand, you have to deal with all the vagaries, objections and other manifestations of the process of becoming a person.
Boys show their aggression by physical methods, while girls attack the offender with verbal means: with malicious comments, rumors, they may not communicate, be excluded from games and ignored in every possible way.
According to mothers, the most problematic aspects of the educational process of boys are as follows:
Boys are aggressive and physically active
They are constantly in the process of playing: rushing, jumping, falling, using furniture as springboards. Boys are always ready to break or hurt something. This can happen for two reasons: because of high physical activity and low level of empathy, which affects the fact that boys do not understand well that “breaking” or “damaging” is bad.
Verbal communication at the very beginning presents a certain difficulty
Verbal skills in boys begin to develop later than in girls. The style of these skills is also different. Girls are more likely to discuss several options, boys express only what they definitely want to get to take or do. For example, the situation with the choice of which cartoon to watch. The girl will discuss with you his and your options, the boy will stand his ground that “Pokemon” is the best cartoon.
Any activity is turned into a competition
They compete with peers, with brothers and sisters, with parents. If you are raising two boys, sometimes a passion for rivalry helps if you want children to get dressed faster or eat faster, etc.
