This is an interesting article:

I’m not sure I agree with all of it and some of it is obviously tongue-in-cheek but anyone who has parented (Is that a verb?) ‘one of each’ will know that there is some truth in the principles cited here.

The subject is discussed in much greater detail in the book ‘Why Men Don’t Listen and Women Can’t Read Maps’ by Allan and Barbara Pease. It’s a ‘must read’ for anyone interested in the psychological differences between men and women.

  1. Obviously I can’t comment from a parents point of view but having been a child for most of my early years, it’s nature versus nurture, I used to play with cars, and climb trees, just saying!
