    It has been said that women are from a different planet than men. Do you believe this is true? If so, why?


    A husband spent an entire day with his friend, Doug, deep-sea fishing. When the husband got home, his wife asked him, “How is Doug’s son? I know he was having a hard time.” Her husband looks at her like she has 10 heads and says, “I don’t know.” The wife says, “ You were with him all day.” The husband replies, “We did not talk about that.” The wife, looking puzzled, questions, “What did you talk about all day?"” The husband ponders this for a moment and responds, “Well, we talked about the upcoming football season.” The wife again is puzzled, “You were together with Doug all day and that is all you spoke about?!” The husband nods his head.

    Communication between men and women is just one of the differences between the genders.

    In this lesson you will learn about boys and girls, men and women, and the difference between the two.
