From today's Parade Magazine:

"There are life skills that we teach girls but don't teach boys...I'd love to work with coaches on ways we could better mentor boys."

Thoughts?

She raised girls...I raised boys, I think I am two up on her for that. I had the same "talks" with the boys as I did my daughter. We alwasy had family discussions and they all had the same lessons. IN Q&A times, if the boys had male oriented questions, I answered them in front of their sister and visa versa. If they needed a "private moment", then it was kep private. But for the most part we were always open in out discussions, no matter what the topic was.

I wish she'd be more specific about these "life skills" that girls are getting the edge on.

I have one comment...She's as clueless as her husband.
