HI All--I'm a mom of twin boys, now 9 (just turned) and a daughter. I'm really interested in learning more from you all about raising boys, as a mom from a very girl oriented family-of-origin (two sisters--girly household) it was a shock to discover twin boys were on the way! I've been through a lot with them in school in particular, and am really interested in thinking about those issues. I had a TED talk on the topic if you're familiar with TED talks, here's the website: http://www.ted.com/talks/ali_carr_chellman_gaming_to_re_engage_boys_in_learning.html

Would love to hear what you think about it. THANKS!

Hi,
I'm a twin mom as well. Mine turned 6 recently, and my oldest is 7 (they are all boys). I'm struggling with the boy thing too. I grew up with just one sister and never had to spend much time around boys growing up, so it's really tough. I just don't understand the fascination with gross things, bodily functions, why the have to be so loud all the time etc. I feel like I'm living in a frat house, and I'm much more at home in a pink and frilly sorority house!
