I know there are little boys who plays with little girls and there are little girls who is like one of the boys but usually Little kids seems to have a gender divide. Boys and girls seemed to interact more once they reach their teens but mostly in the childhood stage, I notice little boys having a "no girls allowed policy" and Little girls have this "no boys allowed. Usually little boys are embarrassed to have a majority of female friends. But little girls seemed comfortable to be surrounded by little boys. Though majority wise there seemed to be a divide. ] When you are still a child, what is the majority of your playmates? Boys or girls? What kind of childhood games do you play with your male friends? what kind of childhood games do you play with your female friends? Why did I post this topic? yesterday I saw a tree house with kids on it and there is this sign "no girls allowed"

I think boys just would love to be around boys like them. And if they are seen playing with girls, they would be teased as being "sissy", which of course, they do not want to be called that way.

oh yeah a little boy who is always surrounded by girls have tendencies to be bullied by the other boys base on my observation. while a girl surrounded by boys dont seem to be an issue.

I think the difference between typical girlish and boyish behaviour is more prominent as a kid, thanks to typical education (like girls getting dolls, boys getting toycars, pink vs. blue, girls can cry, whereas a boy shouldn't etc.) and kids not having their own complex personalities... also, romance doesn't really occur then (but I now about kindergarten puppy loves, so not all girls and boys hate each other). Kids just want to deal with stuff they like. Boys make fun of girls because playing with Barbies is not cool with a boy's eyes, whereas girls can be a bit spoilt and sissy and hate any kind of games which are a bit more violent (like wrestling or video games like Mortal Combat and Street Fighter and even Star Wars merchandise) or could make them dirty (like climbing on trees)... and they are usually not interested in building buildings and caring about cars and other electronicky stuff... so basically, usually(!) little boys see little girls as wusses and p.ssies, whereas little girls see little boys as violent and dirty... I myself played mostly with girls (as a girl), but I could play with boys, too, with the building blocks and LEGO. But I didn't really wanna play with toycars and vehicles and climb on trees and get muddy :).

I guess, the difference and the like made the boys and girls opposed each other. I think it is normal to do such actions.

do you play with boys when you are just a little girl? or do you stick with girls more?
