In asian it said that girl is closer to dad while the boy is closer to mom in a typical family.Is is true in western culture family? For my observation the girl is always holding hands with the dad while the boy is holding hands with the mom while crossing the street and the girl is more obedient to the dad commands while the boy is more discipline and usually will listen to the bark of the mom.Is this true?

yes its 100% true. the attachment between boy and mom is called edipus complex and the attachment between girl and dad is called electra complex.

Well, maybe it depends in the family where they belong. I can say that i'm close to both of them.. they are very loving and approachable. i can share to them my thoughts and emotion. i was just sad that i have no longer my father with me.

i think i am closer to my mom, however, i got a friend who is a dad and his son is closer to him, i guess because he is at home more since he is home working while the wife is working outside.

I think this is different in every family. It can be that a couple has two daughters, and one daughter is closer to the father while the other is closer to the mother. Or in other families the band between children and parents is equal. It just depends on who you are, and what your parents are like, and which personalities match the most.
