I think this is true in many cases. Boys can be very rambunctious and physical, and I got beat up by my older brother a lot. My dd (the eldest) is much gentler with her younger sibling. [ Reply | More ]

I have two older dds and a youngest boy. It works well for us. They are great helpers and loved him from the start (vs friends with older boys who were either upset about new babies or completely ignored them). The girls are more easily contained - ie I can leave them reading or drawing for an hour or more but not my son (or most boys I know). When they get older ds won't be bringing home older boys who might be a danger to younger sisters. He will also grow up learning a lot about women from his sisters which I think is important.

[ - ] Some friends are visiting our beach house this weekend, and talking to them has made me realize how few friends I have. These people get invited to others' vacation homes just about every weekend, take trips with other families, and have a very active social life with other families who have kids in the same private school as ours. The entire summer has gone by and no one has invited us to do anything, and the other moms with beach houses in the same area have blown off my suggestions to get together. One of them had a big party at their place and invited a lot of the kids and parents from school, but not us. I am honestly baffled as to why, because I think I seem okay (on the outside at least) and always make an effort with others but don't seem to gain any traction. What could be the reason for this? 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] The stuff about migrant deaths in Europe is awful, but at the same time, I'm very happy that it is a European problem and not an American one. The West (esp Obama and Clinton) were happily waving the flag for the Arab Spring, but all that resulted was a bunch of failed states and millions of refugees (Libya, Syria, Yemen, Iraq, to some extent Egypt). The only possible success story is Tunisia, and it is touch and go there with major terrorism events earlier this year. So now there are millions of stateless Muslims flooding southern Europe and making their way to the asylum havens like Germany etc. This wave of migration will do to Europe what the post-Gaullist influx of north Africans did to France -- ie create a massive, pissed off underclass and a breeding ground for domestic terrorism.

It really is a catastrophe. None of our governments have handled the Mid East well. I am nominally a republican but actually optimistic about the Iran deal. The people there are educated, relatively western. I know the government is a brutal theocracy but it is the only bastion of (relative) normality. Interventionism has failed- just creates breeding grounds for further radicalization. But we are also watching Isis commit atrocities (including genocide) so I understand the impulse to keep trying to butt in [ Reply | More ]
