We noticed as early as first grade that our son would jump through hoops to impress pretty young teachers, but if his teacher was middle aged or a man, *yawn*.

I don't blame men. That is how it has been, and always will be.

Young girls in my day didn't take advantage of their youth as much as young women do now. We didn't know our own power, which is deminished by time.
