Dodge ball

I read in a parenting magazine that there are few true gender differences. Boys and girls are not so much born to be different as they are raised to be different.

I also read about some good ways to help your child build skills in areas typically "owned" by the other gender. When I finished reading the article I thought it would be a good idea to share the one idea that stuck with me with Jeff.

Stupid, stupid me.

I paraphrased to him what I got from the article.

Girls tend to fall behind in math because boys are born with a small advantage in spacial perception that magnifies as they play with blocks, vehicles, and balls.

So now my husband throws balls at my kid. Yep, even when she's not looking.
