    I disagree with this statement because boys can be more mature than girls.
    My Example is My cousin (his a boy) He is very organized and mature. When he was 8 he cleaned the whole house. He also cooked the food because his mom and dad were working almost all the time so my grandma had to look after him. My grandma is already old so my cousin had to cook clean the house and do the laundry. Now he is 18 almost going to university. My other cousin she is a girl she is quite immature. She doesn’t do any thing she just plays the computer all day. Only sometimes she does the laundry. I think that Boys can be mature than girls. But I also have to agree that this statement can be true because Boys and Girls in 2010 are very lazy. Also my mother said that when she was young she had to work and work and she had to be very organized in her school (it was a thai school) She said that the teacher was very strict and it was a really hard life. She said “But now a days kids can do any thing in school :They don’t get smacked, They can paint their nails, they can hilight their hair They can do anything” in 2010 i think that girls grow up faster than boys.

      I think that Boys can also grow up faster than girls. Because sometimes they are not lazy and they want to be organized :) :P :D

    I disagree with the statement because:
    1. Boys can grow faster than girls.
    2. Somes boys has more manners than girls.
    3. Most of the girls has more manners than boys.
    4. My brother always help my mom to do things.
    5. Sometimes boys are knowledgable than girl.
    6. Some boys are organize.
    7. Some boys grow the same time as girl.
    8. I think that boys voice became lower faster than girls.

    I agree

    Boys are really imature.

    have you notised that only Boys are on the red light no girls just boys that means

    that boys are being silly or forgetful.

    When we are talking it always boys interupting.

    I think girl grow up faster than boy. But I think boys and girl are same if they grow up.

    I agree with the statment beause many boys never listen to people like if a person tells them to stop doing something they always coutinue doing the same thing over and over again.Some boys don’t care about their behaviour like somke boys interupt in the middle of the conversation and more.And I think this statment is also right because most of the boys are in the handwriting heroes-fighting for their hanwriting.So that’s why i think this statment is right.

    • Pin
      October 20, 2010 at 10:00 am

      oh I think that that is quite true but some of the boys have very neat handwriting
      I kind of agree when you said they always continue doing the same thing over and over again :)

    I disagree with the statement “Girls grow up faster than boys”. Girls grow up faster than boys mentally most of the time and most of the time boys grow up faster physiccaly. There are some boys that grow up faster mentally than some girls and there are some girls that grow up faster physically than boys.
    I think most of the girls at NIST act more mature than boys. Boys are usually the immature ones, not all the time though.
    Boys are usually the ones who get into trouble and are silly. Some girls, such as myself, are silly like the boys but most girls learn from their mistakes.

    The topic was ‘Girls grow up faster than Boys’. I agree with the statement because sometimes I see and talk to this boy that is short and he’s from 6SS. He’s quite mature.

    October 20, 2010 at 10:03 am

    I half-half agree with this this statement and I half-half disagree with this statement because girls are responsible and controlable. Boys are less controlable and are noisy and have no responsibility. Girls make more sense and they are more knowledgeable for worldwide stuff and the community, verses boys, somtimes they are innocent and they have no idea about the world (sometimes.) But then sometimes boys are more mature than girls and they sometimes grow way,way,way, faster than girls, like for the body, as example, the boys voice usually sinks and goes low. Boys are immature and girls are more mature. Girls normally are better then the boys in many ways and the boys are normally silly and very uncontrolable, like they are not ready for adulthood.

    I also disagree with this statment because only some boys grow very slowly.My cousin who is a boy he is very intelligent he always gets good marks in exams and other tests.So that’s why i disagree with this statment.

  13. 18paulah
    October 20, 2010 at 10:07 am

    I mostly agree with the statement “Girls grow up faster than boys” , but I partly disagree. I think that sometimes kids do grow up at around about the same period of time.
    I think in some schools for example in NIST girls grow up faster than boys.
    Some examples are that most Kentions (which are already answered or unnecesary questions) come from boys allthe time but never from girls.
    A thing I heard from two year sevens is that usually girls get into pupity at the age of 10 to 11 and boys go into pupity at the age of 12 to 13.
    An example which will support the disagreeing side of me is how i have been noticing how the boys in our class really care about the unit how we organize ourselves and all the other units and they try very hard.

    In some ways girls do grow faster than boys. But I personally think that boys grow a little faster than girls. Okay, at my house, I get babied by my mom. But that doesn’t mean that I am a baby. It’s just that they are loving you in an affectionate way. But I see some amateur boys and some amateur girls. But I don’t know if girls act like babies at school or at their home. Even though I get babied, I don’t want to because everyone will get wind of my facts that I am getting babied by my mom and in my opinion, I think that I look like a foo fool. But if you ask or tell foreign people like people from Europe that I am like a complete fool because I am getting babied, they will consider it as normal because in Europe, people like adult or children kisses, hugs and does all affectionate things. So I conclude my thought as Boys grow faster than Girls.

    I agree that girls grow faster ybecause Pimboon already have pimples and my mom said that
    she had pimples when she was in year 2 but it disappeared fast. My big brother got pimples when he was end of year 6 and got pubertie. I dont think boys grow faster because they get gentel when they are grown and I think girls grow faster because they get smart and bosssy or taller when they are grown. I think that boys complains alot but girls sometimes triying to make them selves show off.

    I disgree with this statement because when girls are by there self’s they act like a bounch of little kid but boys just play sports or talk about things happening in there life. Boy’s grow up faster then girls because when someone tells a boy something unapropriate they will get ove it after a month but girls will remeber and still act really silly when they hear someone say it. Boy’s do grow faster then girls because most girls are not that tall but I still think girls grow up fast but I think i think boyup ‘s grow up faster.

        October 20, 2010 at 12:05 pm

        Saeyeon,I don’t think boy’s body hair
        get faster,because boys have sports everyday and boys body hairs get faster; but some girl have sports too, Maybe they get body hair faster too.
        I think boys and girls get body hair is same.

    October 20, 2010 at 11:16 am

    I disagree with this statment because I think boys grow faster then girls in many ways.
    I feel this because usally boys are more stonger, athletic and ready for the real world. I know this because I have seen boys do better in PE. I think if something happens boys are more ready for it.
    I also think boys grow faster then girls because boys reach puberty faster than girls. I feel that because I have heard a few people in 6ss say that.
    I think that the one way girls grow faster is that they don’t usally make the same mistake twice.
    Boys also are eager to do things for example when they want something they get it. I also think that when boys want to improve in math, english ect they improve faster then girls do.
    Also I think boy

    • October 20, 2010 at 8:05 pm

      I think it’s hard to generalize because some girls can be quite athletic and sporty too. It all depends on the individual I think.

    October 20, 2010 at 11:18 am

    Another comment I’m trying to write right now.

    I think that some girls in my class and in the other class grows faster than I do. For example, there’s several girls in my class who’s taller and already have pimples faster than I do. But I think that for me, the chance of getting pimples in my face is slim and clumsy. Because not evevy people get pimples when they go through puberty. For example, I asked a guy in the class and he says that if you wash your face often after you played sport or something like that, or if you’re face is not greasy, you won’t get any pimples or not many pimples. The thoughts for boys growing faster than boys is that some boys are better at cooking than other girls. I don’t think that’s not impossible because some girls can’t even cook at all or not used to at cooking because they have a maid who cooks food for them and they just sit around playing games. But my family doesn’t have a maid and I think that I am particulary more organized than some people because even some people are more organized than I am even if they have a maid. Maids are waste of money because even though they do things that are hard or something, you don’t need a maid if you

    I agree with this statement and I also diagree with this statement.

    I agree with this statement because some girls when they are about 5 they start to help there mom and the house. And some girls when they are about 10 they start going threw puberty. But some girls go threw puberty when they are about 14. SOme girls before this unit they are already oranized like Pin she is very organized.

    I disagree wirh this statement because some boys when they are 5 they start helping the house and there parents. And some boys when they are about 10 they start going threw puberty. For example Harry in 6DH he is already going threw puberty like he is starting to have pimples on his face. And some boys are already organized.

  24. 18julienn
    October 20, 2010 at 11:19 am

    I kind of agree and diagree. That is because I think that mentally though boys grow faster than girls do. But sometimes boys grow faster mentally than girls. For example Louis (my older brother) has always been very organized and doesn’t like to be messy like most of boys who don’t really bother. Also some girls don’t like to be always mature and always to be messy, some of them actually like to be messy. An example of that is Charlotte (my girl cousin) she doesn’t like to be perfect all the time and for her room to be tidy.

    October 20, 2010 at 11:20 am

    live alone because you won’t even use most of the rooms that you have in your apartment.

    boys and girls grow exactly the same but men’s voice will be more low. that’s the difference

  26. Johan
    October 20, 2010 at 11:20 am

    I dissagree with this statement because some boys can be really mature and some boys can also talk about physical things and about puberty . Though boys can be silly and take a lot of risks that you shouldn’t do and a lot of boys just do those risks because they want to be cool. Also girls are very talkative and sometimes they talk at unapropraite time like yeasterday all the girls were talking and the boys were working and then every 2 minutes boys would have to say be quiet and still they wouldn’t stop. Something that I find very annoying with girls is when they have BFF’s and fights over a friend and the ykeep on saying ‘ shes my best frind’ ‘no shes mine’ they always fight over it but the girls this is only some girls it’s not everyone only some. That is something that boys usaullay dont do. Some girls also have these marks or marbles or maybe neckleses which like represents there friend ship.

  27. 18michaelt
    October 20, 2010 at 11:20 am

    I disagree with this statement because boy try new things and take risks but girls dont take so many risks.

    Girls are very talkative and usually talk about BFFs like this “No she is my friend” “but shes my best friend” “NO SHE ISNT! they always fight over who is whos best friend but boys dont do that alot.

    I also think some boys hit puberty faster than girls but some girls hit puberty faster than boys. In year 3 all the boys were working when lots of girls were talking about something else and they got in trouble.

    Some girls like to tell rumours that are lies like “did you know she likes _____?” “really!?!?!”. Yesterday quite alot of girls were laughing and talking when some boys were trying to work.

    I think boys want to take risks because they want to try new things and see if they go over their boundaries.

    I think girls are very annoying when they talk about BFFs (Best Friends Forever) because I dont think any one wants to know about whos friend is whos. Last week I saw some girls in year 3 or 4 telling eachother to get there friendship marbles. I think that is very annoying because it is unecessary and when they were going down when I went down they made a big group so the faster people couldnt go through. Also when I was trying to go up to eat there were alot of girls in a big group taling about gossip and pop singers and I was very hungry.

    • 18aayushk
      October 20, 2010 at 11:26 am

      Yeh I agree boys take more risks then girls but sometimes taking risks are bad. Like 1 boy tried riding a car, that was not a good risk.

    • 18saeyeono

    I feel that generally boys grow faster in the physical way. Girls grow faster in a mental way. I do not know any girls that are going through physical pubery. I also think girls are more mature then boys at a earlyer stage but, I do not think it is part of puberty. although everyone is different and sometimes it can be different I do know some girls that went through puberty earlier. I also know some boys that go through it later. To sum things up I have a very 2 sided argument.

    I think that girl it is up to the life style they are people grow by thier life style. Girl grows faster than boys in learning and some do not have good learning.
    Boys have something that are better and girls. Nobody grows faster than who because some thing girls grows faster than boy but sometime boy also better than girl.

  31. Shikhar
    October 20, 2010 at 11:35 am

    I think boys and girls grow together or they grow at the same time. I think it dependse on if the boy grows first or if the girl grows fist.SOmetimes girscan grow faster or it could be the other way around.

    I really don’t think it matters if the boy gows faster or the girl grows faster. It might also matter at Puberty like boys normally get Puberty first
