Tomboys Mom's creations


…This was such a “category” when HA was growing up. Boisterous girls who were physically bold and one of the boys.

…Researchers now say the mother’s level of testosterone during pregnancy can result in “masculine-gender-typical” role behavior.

…In one study, in Avon, England, about 14,000 pregnant women were studied during an 18-month period. Of the children born, 686 were tested. The mothers’ testosterone levels, as well as levels of a chemical that inhibits testosterone, were measured during each pregnancy.

…When the tots turned 3.5 years of age, they were given a behavior test. There was a link between testosterone levels in the mother and masculine type choice of toys and play.

…Of course, nature v nurture takes a huge turn when teachers and parents rip the trucks out of the girls’ hands and stick in a doll instead.

…Still, other research shows that the rough-and-tumble girls tend to be more confident and competitive academically as well as on the soccer field.

…In a way, tomboys have a wider choice of options…they can dress up or play street football.

Nearly 70% of men with ED have some kind of underlying condition. Healthcare providers should treat erectile dysfunction and check the testosterone level at the same time. It is very important to bring the testosterone level to a normal level; testosterone therapy can make this possible. http://www.buy-viagra-with-us.com/
