The book "See Jane Hit" by Garbarino


The Book "See Jane Hit" by Garbarino


NBC


Morning News


According to Mr. James garbarino, girls used not to have power; but now girls are doing more sports and they are allowed to be more active and expressive.He points out that all children have aggressive tendencies and that if a girl has the right teachers and coaches, her aggression can be channeled correctly.


However , he says that we cannot just assume that this is the case.He says that nationwide we are seeing more girls demonstrate aggresive tendencies in cases where the girl is not given the encouragement and help that she needs. Some girls are hitting others severly; even to the point of beating the person up.He mentions that especially when a girl is abused she needs to begiven special help.


What is your take on this?


Personally I think children and teens need more teachers and mentors to guide them. Lately I have experienced some children not being seen or heard and then they seem to feel lost.I think that this author makes some interesting points.

I don't think girls have been powerless since recent times....at first women were the leaders then men took over and now things seem to be somewhat becoming even.  I just think girls now aren't afraid to fight back against all injustice and sometimes that means hitting and sometimes that will mean battling with words.  In all honesty it is young boys that need the most help to ward off aggression since society promotes it most in them.

I think kids are more aggressive now because so many parents dont' have time for them. They have no examples of patience.

I've been trying for 5 years to beat my hub at wrestling. I've jumped off of a loft onto him once... no effect. If I get my legs around his head, I can hurt him... but if he wants to get free bad enough, he can pry my gams off him.

it's sad that girls feel compelled to do this.
