There is no land like that of a childhood. Still the boys and girls have different childhood .
Today in kid’s Corner a traditional song from china
When a son is born,
He is cradled in the bed,
He is clothed in robes,
Given a jade sceptre as toy.
His lusty cries portend his vigor,
He shall wear bright, red knee-caps,
Shall be the lord of a hereditary house.
When a daughter is born,
She is cradled on the floor,
She is clothed in swaddling-bands,
Given a loom-whorf as toy,
She shall wear no badges of honour,
Shall only take care of food and drink,
And not cause trouble to her parents.
( Chinese Book Of Songs)
