Boys Will Be Boys

Im so tired of hearing boys will be boys. I have a son and I’m tired of it.  What does the old adage “boys will be boys” actually mesn?   “It’s one of those positively negative statements that we just smile at when we hear.  “Boys will be boys” is just a saying that soccer moms say when their son has just done something AWFUL. This statement implies that any negative behavior should be excused on the grounds that boys are always doing things that are wrong, and need to be treated with a degree of leniency that borders on insanity.”

Boys will be boys is  BS.   I’m tired of hearing that.  It should be kids will be kids. My son likes running and jumping in puddles in his brand new sneakers because he is two years old…not because he’s a boy.
