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.

So, parents often consider boys to be unemotional when caregivers note their increased emotionality. At Continue reading

Children are divided into two opposite camps – boys and girls – with their own rules and rituals of behavior; treason to one’s own camp is despised and condemned, and attitude towards another camp takes the form of confrontation.
These external manifestations of psychosexual differentiation and sexual socialization are the result of psychological patterns.
Regardless of the place of residence and cultural environment, certain differences are observed in the behavior of boys and girls in the first six years of life. Boys aged 6-8 years are active and require more attention, girls are more gentle and calm. Moreover, boys are more aggressive.
