    Why is it that most girls/women are close to their Dads and most boys/men are close to their mums?

    This isn't true of all children, I don't think. But there is some logic to it though. In order to learn about the opposite sex, kids have to be able to count on their parents. After all, if you're a little girl who wants to know more about boys, who better to turn to than the first man in your life? There's probably more to it than that, but I'm not sure.

    It seems to me that fathers feel an innate obligation to protect their daughters...maybe because they know how boys are. Perhaps moms subconsciously want to make sure their sons grow into men who will treat women right...maybe because they've most likely encountered a man who didn't.
