2 : A Rambunctious Girl ^NEW^
While we may pride ourselves on how we pamper our animals with the best of everything, we may be denying them what they need most, the companionship of one of their own species. Most feline behaviorists agree that cats generally lead healthier, happier lives if there is another feline in the household. Even if the cats never become bosom buddies, just sharing the house with another living creature while you are away helps to break the monotony and loneliness. Of course, if they become playmates, there is the added benefit of exercise and entertainment that is especially needed by kittens and young adult cats. Many cases of playful aggression directed toward the guardian as well as various forms of household destruction can be prevented if the cat's energies are focused on a playmate. Young males (3-24 months) have an especially strong need for a "buddy". While guardians of rambunctious young males often hesitate to take on another cat, those who take that "leap of faith" and get another young male are generally delighted to see how much the "boys" enjoy each other.
2 : A Rambunctious Girl
To Your Eternity is turning out to be an emotional rollercoaster of a show. Last week, viewers cried about the nameless boy's death in the series premiere. Now in Episode 2, we're pushed to the edge of our seats once more watching the story of a little girl named March, who is intended to be a sacrifice for her village.
In the village of Ninannah, March dreams of growing up, watching enviously as an older girl is praised for finally becoming an adult. When March plays with her toys, she acts like a mother. And when she plays with an older girl named Parona, the two of them act like a married couple. March is lively and exuberant but there's something that marks her as different from the other children: her forehead and cheeks are painted with black ink.
A woman dressed in armor named Hayase tells the villagers of Ninannah they will choose an "untarnished girl" to be a sacrificial offering to the powerful being Oniguma, who will bring "peace and prosperity" to the village. Of the three girls marked with ink, March is chosen as the sacrifice without any real explanation. Still being a child, March doesn't understand what's happening until she returns home and her parents break into sobs, apologizing to her.
March has no way out. If she runs away they'll just pick another girl to take her place, which makes the act of choosing one of the girls moot. This is another aspect that makes March's sacrifice so heartbreaking -- she was just extremely unlucky. She has no choice but to wait to die.
Master star Regina Hall recently shared an update regarding the script to Girls Trip 2. From The Best Man director Malcolm D. Lee, the raunchy road comedy starred Hall as bestselling author Ryan Pierce who invites her old friends on a trip in an attempt to rekindle their friendship. Collectively known as the "Flossy Posse," the group consisted of internet gossip reporter Sasha Franklin (Queen Latifah), nurse and mother Lisa Miller Cooper (Jada Pinkett-Smith), and the rambunctious unemployed Dina (Tiffany Haddish).
The show centers around a boy, a girl, a dog, a cat, a mouse, and a piece of cheese, all respectively named after what they are, who live together. In June 2019, the series was renewed for a second season, ahead of the series premiere. On July 28, 2022, it was confirmed that the series has been renewed for a third season, with production being greenlit as well. 
Lifestyle sessions for newborns that include siblings are always an adventure! This sweet girl had a 2 year old big brother, and he was a hoot! He was so gentle with his sister, and even went as far as offering her one of his cars (I very quickly learned these are his favorite things!), and helped feed her. He is still a rambunctious 2 year old though, and I included some of the photos that made me laugh, and gave a real sense of the reality of having 2 kids under 2! Photos of the moments of families all together on the couch, just enjoying being close are my absolute favorite, and there is no shortage of those here!
At least one study shows that kids growing up with siblings of the opposite sex are more flexible about their gender roles - they see more options for themselves, even at an early age. In a study of the behaviors of 4- to 9-years-olds in their homes, same-sex siblings were highly traditional in their choices of toys and games. Boys with brothers played with trucks, girls with sisters played with dolls. But among opposite-sex siblings, the choices of activities were largely determined by the sex of the older child. Boys with older sisters played house as much as pairs of sisters did, while boys with older brothers never did.
At least one intriguing study has shown that there are substantial benefits to being the only girl in a mixed-gender family. Economists Kristin Butcher of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and Anne Case of Princeton University discovered that the only girl in a family of one or more boys had several advantages over girls in other families. On average, such girls got more schooling and ultimately made more money than women who grew up with one or more sisters (even when there were also boys in the family).
Butcher and Case analyzed data from three different longitudinal studies, involving roughly 45,000 women. In addition to getting more schooling, women raised as the only girl in a family of one or more boys also tended to take more math and science courses in high school than women raised with sisters.

A "Thinker." He's a smart child with a wild imagination. JoJo can be played as being a little bit awkward, a little bit of a loner, or simply a rambunctious kid whose "Thinks" get him into constant trouble. By the end of the show, he learns what it means to be a responsible member of his community, using the power and possibilities of his own "Thinks." JoJo should be one of your strongest singers, and can easily be played by a young girl or boy.
The Bird Girls, including Bird Girl 1, Bird Girl 2, and Bird Girl 3, are a fabulous group of birds who know everything there is to know about the goings on in the jungle and support Mayzie throughout the show. Cast girls who are great movers, singers, and work well together as a group.
Remember that all cats have unique personalities. Many girl cats love cuddling with their owners and are just as rowdy as the boys. And some males are standoffish and perfect spending time alone. Like humans, cats are individuals with their own personalities, likes, and dislikes. When looking for a cat, we strongly suggest getting to know a few potential new furry family members and choosing the one that best suits your preferences and lifestyle.

Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is recognized to exist in males and females although the literature supports a higher prevalence in males. However, when girls are diagnosed with ADHD, they are more often diagnosed as predominantly inattentive than boys with ADHD. This article provides a review of gender differences noted across the lifespan. Males and females with ADHD are more similar than different, and generally ADHD profiles are not sex specific. Small gender differences have been found: adolescent girls with ADHD have lower self-efficacy and poorer coping strategies than adolescent boys with ADHD; rates of depression and anxiety may be higher, and physical aggression and other externalizing behaviors lower in girls and women with ADHD. Men with ADHD seem to be incarcerated more often than women with ADHD. However, many studies suffer from small sample sizes, referral biases, differences in diagnostic procedures, and possible rater influences. Treatments are reviewed and discussed with reference to the reported gender differences in functioning and the global deficits noted in all samples. The data available so far suggest that treatments are likely to be equally effective in males and females. However, referral bias is a problem, in that females with ADHD are less likely to be referred for treatment than males with ADHD. Future research should include equal representation of both sexes in samples such that sex by treatment analyses can be routinely conducted.
I am a mom of 6 boys and one girl and I do not totally relate to this article. My boys are VERY different from my daughter and until I had my daughter I could never REALLY understand what its like to be a girl Mom. Very diffetent worlds, but both equally awesome
Ghosts in the House! by Kazuno Kohara is on my must buy list! A little girl moves into house and soon finds out it is haunted. Luckily she is a witch and knows just what to do. The ghosts in the story seem mischievous but never scary and even when she washes them in the washing machine, they are still smiling. This may not be the first book you think of when you think of strong girls but it should be. This little girl takes care of her problems herself with confidence and ability. I loved the simple black and orange colors and had to look at the copyright twice because I was certain this was written sometime in the 30s, nope 2008. Halloween is a time when so many young girls dress in costumes that make them feel powerful, strong and beautiful and this book is a great companion to that subtle message of you can do anything and be anyone you want. 041b061a72
