The boy child THROWS everything: difference between girls & boys?
I have the very unique position of being the only co-foundress mama, of the four, who has offspring of varied gender. All the other three co-foundress urbanMamas have three boys each. Me: two girls and a little boy.
Our sweet little angel of a boy is fast approaching two, and his pitch is fast approaching 100mph. He loves to chuck stuff and his hands are becoming heavy: topple his yogurt bowl when he's all done, throw a little racecar at you to signal he wants to play, give you a little love slap on the face when he's overcome with glee.
When the girls were little toddlers, they kind of just sat, fiddled with their fingers or small objects (not trying to haul a full garbage can clear across the room), drew on the paper (not on the cabinets or walls as I discovered our boy child doing yesterday), sitting in their chairs when done eating (not standing up the chair after done and preparing to launch/jump right out). Our boy has more energy, heavier hands.
Do you have a toddler boy? See similar qualities? Do you have both boys & girls & have the opportunity to compare & contrast? Is it a gender thing? Finally: how do you use positive discipline, unconditional parenting or other calm techniques to say: "STOP THROWING!"?
