Another thought...

... concerning femininity....

We really want our boys to treat their sisters (and mom) like ladies, whether they act like ladies or not. Usually our girls are just as rough and tumble as they boys, which is fine in some circumstances. But on the whole, we want Benjamin and Edmund to specifically treat girls as special, with tenderness as a "weaker vessel". We figure that how our boys treat their mom and sisters in the home they grow up in is how they will more than likely treat the women in the home they will establish in the future. It is terribly sweet to see Benjamin being gentle with the girls. :-)
