Boys use words; girls just cry.
These are the thoughts of one four year old.
A girl started crying because her hand touched something and so her hand was hurt and it was then ok to start crying pathetically. (She is the best crier. Real tears in no time.)
I asked the crying girl to use her words and tell me what happened.
The boy next to me looked doubtful. He squinted his eyes and said, "Mmm. I think girls don't use words. They just cry. The boys can use words. Girls just cry."
I tried to stop laughing as I told him that we all cry and we all should use our words.
