This week and next I’m watching my 5 year old go through some swimming lessons. This is not the first time I’ve done this so I thought I’d share some quick observations. I have been amazed watching the difference between girls and boys in these lessons. Generally the girls seem much more relaxed than the boys. They listen to instructor without bouncing around and without too many worries. The boys on the other hand, in most cases (and admittedly particularly in my sons case) to be really excited to be there and always moving. It’s an interesting difference I don’t know if it’s a cultural thing or something more innate, but it’s fascinating to see! It also reminds me of hoe much respect I have for kindergarten and early childhood teachers. What a handful!
