He and that kind of -- few harsh. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Now why why is that and we -- this up for news here but if -- -- just a couple more minutes I'd like to know. If that's genetics is it the way boys treated is that the way we're wired. And also I want addressed parents do they often get what they -- or what they think they -- do they know what they want when it comes of boys or girls I thought I wanted to boy but. Now looking back after 18 years I am so thankful to the good lord that I had a girl because I would have been entirely too hard. On them on a boy because I need is some of the things that girls do you think they're cute and daddy's little girl to be a boy. You'd you'd say come on suddenly Dillon gage had -- you're in now. So about that won't come back as well and wanna get you all involved the listeners at T six -- 187 he told freak. 866889087. Did you get what you wanted when it was a boy or girl or maybe. When it comes to your parents did you sense that they wanted something else and you struggled with that. Or did you managed did to realize after a certain period of time you know what. I wanted to girl. But I'm glad I got a boy because it would have been completely different in terms of a Hollywood have treated them Tommy Tucker back in a flash right now time for -- WL first news. After that. We go to David David you get boys girls one of each neither I got one of each a lot of how -- -- -- difference you've found in raising. Either one boys and girls. Read boy was much Maurer Rwandan. Testy in a difficult. Rowdy. Where the girl was just a piece. And I wonder if that really wasn't Kaczur Regis your perception of a doctor -- a -- -- withers author of the French youth stakes and was edges his reception and as have been saying I thought I wanted to boy that I have been entirely too hard. On a boy is it because there are legitimate differences between the two or just a attacks comes in says does blessed with a son and daughter. It's true you signing your son until he marries but your daughter is your daughter for the rescue alive. Yeah I think you think they're them legitimate differences there are courts you know it's kind of like him Atlantic stat that. But that interesting. Huge by sometime really gigabytes decades so in other words like -- a lot of parents. Com and what I am not having although not yet to. Each Sunday and packed with yeah and sometimes it can keep cursing proceed derby and you can't beat there's. That activity on the map compared it -- Democrat -- -- compared to -- And then a lot of parents report that during the teenage years in. The third pick up in terms of the girls because some time. Summit in motion all eaten an emotional fluctuates and some of the -- that. I'm groped can be pretty taxing you so it. I don't intend to think you might think something's not Turkey a year and try to equipment changes that out that there are. -- -- -- -- it -- there and the scary how much ski. But it's really just isn't that -- an attack or that your kid third quarter down. Okay. What kind of between. And how to -- -- -- Cadillac you know my car that's made a better relationship with Mike -- and alternate. So labored talent you child that. In terms of dynamics between. Mailed parents signed a father brother and son father. Daughter mothers on mother daughter it seems as though there's this mother daughter dynamic that eventually. Is headed for conflict doesn't know the same with boys in beds. In general believe it can be a little bit more willing to do that it brought Sox aren't what they perceive as flights so. It -- -- -- -- -- -- but it does seem that the mother daughter conflict can be brutal crime because everybody's cheering around at remembering a lot of history. And so it on the like you're walking around and it's not just -- -- out what you're having for breakfast and -- -- talk about today that it chipped out three weeks ago. And so and I think you have a good for the -- signed -- him. It -- seem to stop her from for the same extent because in general. It might be a little bit more activity they still -- a patent and son. They're not sure you know talking as much in terms of emotional on the line there may be opportunities to be and maybe tying it together. Whereas you know mother -- can be a little bit more -- there may -- patent applications without. Relationship and it deeper way and maybe a little bit more room to be -- it right here -- -- -- trying to work with a mother and -- cares. It's been twenty years into their argument and and it still comes out. So it's kinda like. This salad dressings seems a little lightly and then the other one responds with what do you mean I ruined your teenage years by being so controlling. I appreciate you you'd time tells by the book the friendship fix. Yeah -- -- cover a lot of the patent pact that we -- speaking about earlier that romantic complications about friendship but most of about. How to find that trend warrior out how to fix the problems come out and you -- to really maximize ranger Al. Thank you doctor appreciate -- time haven't been able to hockey again. Advocate he -- -- -- of on your author of the friendship -- and lot. We are more than aware of that Hamas and Israel lobby and missiles at each other but. The there's always trouble in the Middle East we are more than aware about the border issue in Mexico we've talked about that we just so we'd like monopoly at this morning and talk about. Something that we all. Deal with the -- is parenting and when it comes to boys or girls digit. Get what you wanted do you wish you would have had one that you didn't have for example if you have girls you wish you dead boys and just the opposite. Or did you think you wanted one or the other and as it turned out it was perfect because. Yeah you probably would have botched up. The other one and also tell me about the dynamic with boys and girls in the same house. Is there a difference when it comes to raise and -- And what you stories about behavior in terms of young boys and young girls Tommy Tucker back in a flash talking with you on WW. Tommy Tucker double WL 74713. Before -- talking about -- hands those story. About staying friends with your next do you think it's possible can you do it I personally. Don't think he can. Only under rare circumstances but if you are I'd love to hear from -- It's music so when he 7203866889087. -- which in the express line with one comment or less. And we're also -- raising boys and girls what are the differences. An accelerated talk about crime cameras -- the -- City Council approving surveillance cameras at the lake front public parks and gathering places. And would you be willing to give up some privacy in order to be safer. -- the police did spot and prevent trouble I was waiting for you before you got to it. Are you going down the corner and a police the the side street. Some thugs are Neer do wells that are wait -- rip you off. Maybe Killian is so what they do is. They dispatch a car out to look at it and it would seem to me in terms of shortages of budget in terms of narrow casting is opposed to broadcasting. I don't have a problem because panel. Really do anything in public that I mind being much slower but are being watched 200 when you. Ever whenever you bring this up people inevitably talk about Big Brother so the question here is would you mind giving up privacy. Would you care there were cameras watching every street every corner every side street. But there was somebody that was. Competent monitoring these screens so that they could know where to. And the police cars made a season body breaking an ounce or an apartment. And -- send them out there and it would seem to me. That that's. You could cover a lot this area. With cameras and like a casino does win -- few highly trained officers who could then dispatched the police to where they need to go. Both for the crime happens not after. And would you be willing and for that to happen if ideally could happen all over the city. He came into it to -- became indeed even even if you don't live here you come into work. And it's wintertime when the sun goes down at 53 gets stuck related work would you like to know. That basically there was an eye in the sky or maybe a guy or gallon this guy Beckett police square headquarters. Watching every camera every monitor. So that if they saw something suspicious. They would dispatch the police out there again I saw the TV show in London that's kind of how it works there and seemed like. A pretty good deal -- me so we'd love to hear from -- on that Michael. And I get sent me a friend to a request. I calculated there'd be less trouble accepting it most of the time it's cool -- once and while it reminds me of why -- I got a divorce. So if you if you maintain a friendship with you Rex why do you do it and if you don't. Lineup this behind it and all week partly cloudy hot humid 40% chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms some of those downpours. Always a possibility highs around 92 with no rain but -- of feel like 95205. And you know that's gonna change. If it rains a lot 50% chance for showers on Tuesday. And -- was talking about a cold front in a different part of the country it's not. Is -- -- negate -- here at all by the same thing really throughout the week. With that chance issue hours range in between forty and 50% as it always does. And highs around ninety depending on. The rain Tommy Tucker back with your calls in the second right now those 751. Nine before eight and it's time to look at traffic was Mike wells I Tommy -- -- WL 756. And among the things we're discussing today is can you be friends with your tax.
