I appreciate this episode as the mom of 3 boys and a girl. I noticed that you were afraid to leave the girls out of the boys podcast ... if it is about boys then the girls don't need to be mentioned or brought into the conversation. It seems to be the same problem that was being discussed...boys being compared to girls or pushed aside for girls. In a podcast about them it's ok to leave the girls out. :)
