If your son doesn't want to have sex, it will not happen. If your daughter doesn't want to have sex, it's going to be harassed every single day by some jackass. Especially in school, the social pressure for girls is unbearable. Teaching her to stand for this (in addition to other things) is not easy as teaching your boy just to be nice.
OP, my daughter is the one that can get pregnant. My son is the one that can get a woman pregnant. Those are not treatments or some disconnected way of treating the sexes. I DO worry about who my children sleep with as the outcomes can be life changing.
I desperately wanted boys when my wife was pregnant with both our kids, and instead we had daughters. What I hadn’t expected was having geeky daughters and it’s the best of both worlds. My 9 yo and I will be programming a robot in python during holiday break—at her request.
One of the reasons I posted this is because a close friend of mine recently got his 3rd daughter.
When I congratulated him over a few glass of whiskey he expressed an extreme disappointment, he is thinking of divorcing his wife because he didn’t have a son. I’m talking about a Scandinavian guy here.
I obviously told him that he needs to look over his own values but we were a bit drunk at that point.
How can gender of a child be so significant for some people? I don’t understand.
