Re: Our cool kids....

During my child psych class I took as a junior in
college, I learnt (not that I hadn't known it before)
that a lot of parents punish their daughters for
fighting and praise their boys for acts of violent
aggression.  I can't remember this one incident,
because it happened before 1983 when I began to
remember, but I'm told by my parents that when I was
very young, I slammed some boy over the head with a
toy fire truck because I was pissed off he invaded my
space.  I was quite a handful and often struck out at
other children when young, though it's been years
since I've acted that way.
