    What is the difference between boys and girls ?

    Donna’s point of view

    Do boys or girls mature faster ?
    Girls definitely mature faster ! Some boys behave like absolute babies when they are with their friends.

    Do girls worry about their appearance more ?
    Yes. They especially worry about their hair and clothes.

    Do you act differently when you are with girls ?
    I talk about different things but I don’t act differently. There is no point acting differently with boys. You must just be yourself.

    What can girls do better than boys ?
    Horse-riding and listen to people’s problems.

    Do parents treat sons and daughters differently ?
    Yes, some fathers treat their sons differently to their daughters. Some mothers treat their daughters differently to their sons. Also, in some families the daughters have more restrictions. The daughters must speak "nicely" and they have to look smart but the boys don’t have to.

    What annoys you about boys ?
    When they are in large groups they act like idiots but if they are alone, they are nice. lt also annoys me that they try to act brave and never show their feelings.

    Barclay’s point of view

    Do boys or girls mature faster ?
    Girls definitely mature faster ! At fifteen, we (boys) are still joking around and enjoying doing silly things. At fifteen, girls behave like adults and wear smart clothes.

    Do girls worry about their appearance more ?
    Yes. Boys don’t want to look stupid but they don't worry too much about their appearance. Girls worry a lot more. Perhaps this is the reason why more girls suffer from eating disorders.

    Do you act differently when you are with girls ?
    I talk about the same things to both boys and girls. However, I probably behave less violently with girls.

    What can girls do better than boys ?
    Art subjects. Girls are more creative than boys. Girls are also better at looking after children.

    Do parents treat sons and daughters differently ?
    Not really. Some parents worry more about daughters. I suppose this is fair, especially during puberty. Also, some parents try to encourage their daughters to be more feminine. For example, the daughters must not swear but the sons can.

    What annoys you about girls ?
    They are impossible to argue with. They ignore you when they don’t want to listen ! Also, some girls are very unforgiving, they don’t forget arguments or mistakes. Another thing I dislike is that girls always expect boys to make the "first move" if a boy and a girl like each other. 

    Adapted from TNT, 1995
