I read in The Times newspaper that Dr Sebastian Kraemer has released findings that psychologically, boys are biologically programmed weaker than girls. From the point of conception, stresses on the mother are more likely to effect male embryos than female. They are three times more likely to develop disorders such as autism and hyperactivity. At adolescence, boys have retarded risk evaluation capabilities. And young males are more likely to attemt suicide by several hundred percent. Disciplinarian approach with boys is more likely to leave them troubled than toughened up. Source: The Times: Health, Tues, march 5 2002 Thoughts, comments, arguments?
