I ask this question because difficult child brought it up to us recently. Most of the people who are involved with him are female. Most of the nurses/doctors/staff at psychiatric hospital and collaborative day are female. All of the people we have met through the wraparound services are female - in fact, we were hoping for a male "skill builder" for difficult child and were informed they don't have any - all girls. His teachers have all been female. husband and I thought maybe it was because of the natural "nuturing" tendancies of females - all due respect to the great Dads and DHs of the Board, of course. I wondered if this was across the board in this particular field or just occurring here?? Are there more female teachers than male in general?? Just curious to know what you all have found.
