Eerie As I type this stuff right here…

Eerie.

As I type this stuff right here and now, on the topic of ‘boys and girls’, I hear John Humphries on Radio 4, in a jokey(ish) piece on women in business, saying men and women bring different things to the workplace, followed by a female colleague asking ‘isn’t that sexist?’

Like I say, eerie…

Is the playwork field* ready for a mature…

Is the playwork field* ready for a mature discussion of the differing needs and therefore different requirements of boys and girls?

I can think of reasons why it might be.
I can think of reasons why it might not be.

I can think of reasons why things might have changed since ‘the 70s’.
I can think of reasons why things might not have changed since ‘the 70s’.

I am aware of some of the scientific knowledge we have gained since ‘the 70s’.

I am aware of some of the societal changes since ‘the 70s’.

I am aware that saying ‘the 70s’, gives away my approximate age.

So

I repeat:

Is the playwork field*
ready for a mature discussion
of the differing needs
and therefore different requirements
of boys and girls?

So please contact me with thoughts, ta.

As Dirty Harry*** says:

“Do you feel lucky?”

I’m hoping to get enough responses from my extensive readership to be able to put together a presentation on this topic later in the year.

Over to you.

(problem – this blog doesn’t accept comments yet, I I haven’t set that up yet, so you can’t comment. so if you are reading this, you will be aware that Arthur Battram is on Facebook, so you could message me there, or you could email me, if you don’t already have my email** at: PleXity AT onetel DOT com.)

*They want to call it a profession,
I want to call it a craft,
technically it is a (noble) occupation,
yet the resources it has are similar to leaky tent in a field.
so I chose to call playwork a field.
