One of the reasons that girls are more competent with language skills is related to having 30% more FOX P2 protein than boys.
Our constant talking drives you “men of few words” crazy. But, research shows that men actually talk more than we do, but their conversations are more focused around shared interests which is how their relationships develop.
Women’s relationships are based on verbal skills. Women more readily speak in public than men which contributes to our reputation as talkers.
Ancient men spent their days hunting for food and we girls spent ours in the caves caring for infants. Nothing new there. Infants vocalized and we vocalized back and now, women are the goddesses of language while men are stronger with robust visual skills.
When your daughter talks on and on, be understanding, she can’t help it, it’s her neurology!
