So do not worry, it is not soo 'dreadful' to have girls!
I hope you didn't take my comment as a suggestion that it is impossible for girls to be sensible, JaneEyre, far from it! All the girls I know are lovely and very sensible, just like your daughter. I was just referring to all the pressures coming from the social media that girls are exposed to and that some young girls may find difficult to deal with.
I never thought having a girl would be something 'dreadful', in fact I was hoping to have at least one myself, but ended up with just boys instead.
It's worse at single gender schools .... from my experience, when boys and girls learn together they develop 'healthy' friendships with the opposite gender.
I'd like to think the same, but the article I read was about harassment taking place at schools, so presumably they must have been referring to mixed schools.Tinkers
- you are absolutely right, I couldn't agree more.
I'm wondering now whether the problem is as big as The Independent suggests or is the article an exaggeration...
