Difference between boy and girl

From birth, people begin to notice the differences between boys and girls, since, at an early age, people begin to show traits or characteristics of their sex. These characteristics, little by little, differentiate them from each other and it is from that age that the most outstanding differences in the behavior of boys and girls are generated.

That is why it is of great importance to know the differences between boys and girls that go beyond the physical differences determined by biological sex (male and female), in order to promote the maximum development of each person.

In this article we present the most important characteristics of boys and girls as well as the most outstanding differences, so that you know the importance of paying special attention to individual differences determined by sex.

Child

It can be said that a child is a male person who is in the first stage of his biological development, that is, he has not reached the stage of puberty. A child goes through different stages, from birth when he is called an infant, through the stage of infant or middle childhood to pre-adolescence.

A boy has male sexual organs (penis and testicles) and presents, among other characteristics, that his brain secretes a greater amount of testosterone, a sexual steroid hormone from the androgen group that promotes the growth of muscle mass, strength, increased bone density, stimulation of longitudinal growth and bone maturation.

Due to hormonal development, body chemistry, and brain structure, children’s brains develop more slowly, so they tend to focus on a single task.

Little girl

It can be said that a girl is a female person who is in the first stage of her biological development, that is, she has not reached puberty. Similarly, a girl goes through different stages, from birth when she is called an infant, through the stage of infant or middle childhood to pre-adolescence.

A girl has female sexual organs (vulva and vagina) and presents, among other characteristics, that her brain secretes more serotonin, a neurotransmitter that inhibits aggression and influences a variety of bodily and psychological functions. Girls’ brains work more evenly, giving them the ability to multitask. Due to hormonal development, girls’ bone density is lower than boys’, as well as strength and muscle mass.

Having pointed out the basic characteristics of boys and girls, the following differences are pointed out:

Boys have male sexual organs (penis and testicles). Girls have female sexual organs (vulva and vagina).
Boys have greater strength, bone density, and muscle mass, so they tend to be larger and heavier. Girls have lower strength, bone density, and muscle mass, so they tend to be lighter and smaller.
The brain of children secretes more testosterone (hormone linked to aggression), so they tend to carry out more aggressive activities. The brain of girls secretes more serotonin (neurotransmitter that inhibits aggression) and therefore, they tend to carry out calmer activities.
