While at the swimming pool today with my kids I overheard a woman saying to another woman that, “kids  always get hurt when they are with their fathers and very rarely when they are with their mothers.”

Taking exception to this idea I said, “Perhaps that’s because fathers are less prone to interfering with kids when they are having fun and willing to let them experience life on their own more than mothers do?”

The woman looked at me in a kind of angry way and said, “well that’s kind of a generalization isn’t it?”

Is it anymore of a generalization than she made?
