I have to disagree with some of what the original post on this subject
said. In specific the part with the child that spends more time with
the parent of the opposite sex. I know from expeirence that these
children do have some social problems, but there is no reason to suspect
that this causes under achievment.
I know this because I grew up closer to my mother and grandmothers than
any male counterparts in the family, partially due to divorce. I never
had much trouble in school, and I also have acheived much. I do lack
somewhat is socail skills though, but I have worked hard to improve in
them. This just goes to show that you can't allways believe everything
you read. In the sciences, our favorite statement is, "If you can prove
it wrong once, the idea is not completely valid."
