Brothers and Sisters

Lately, I've been thinking.

Do you suppose that a boy who has a sister has a different perspective on women when he becomes an adult? Is there anything to be said for the fact that he watched her grow, interacted with her on a daily basis, had to understand how to respect her and how to treat her, knew what made her tick, etc.

Do the men you know or have known...have you ever noticed a difference in them if they had a sister or not?

It's just something I've been thinking of...lately...

I think there is a difference. My husband has two brothers and three sisters. He is a sensitive guy who isn't afraid to cry, but at the same time a man's man...ya know?

For sure think there is a difference!

I have noticed a difference. They seem to be more sensitive to women's needs.

I think there is a definite difference; my husband has 3 brothers, no sisters. His mom was the only "girl" in his life, and she did everything for him, so he never learned how to be the leader/giver/nurturer as a husband needs to be; just the child, even to this day in some ways.

I don't mean this to sound critical or ungrateful...just saying how it is.

I have 2 grown daughters and a son. They are close to one another, and are very different in personality traits and temperament. When I see them having fun together I can remember the struggles they had when they were learning to live together and get along.

Blessings to you and your beautiful family!

I think it makes a difference. My son is not all rough and rowdy at all times like some of the boys at his school. He plays dolls, loves babies and small children and is kind of protective of girls. Some of this we teach him but I believe some of it he has just learned by having a sister.

On the other hand he gets frustrated with her tears and mad at some of her more femine ways, but don't all guys experience that? :)
