The developmental mind works differently for boys vs. girls. It’s just human nature and the ways our hormones and thought life developed differently. The goal is to develop the individual desire to learn. Learning and accepting the person where they are at and who they are no matter what age is important. Put it another way, when was the last time you were with a friend and they didn't accept you for who you are? They where always trying to change you. How did that make you feel? Yep, pretty bad. That happens to both male and females in school. Imagine how they felt.
If one trades out liquid water color instead of ink, the child will still feel the same feel of what it it like to ink. Allowing them the freedom to develop the like soils. However, they won't have the stains and mess of inking. Clean up is easier This allows the child the confidence to learn there are no mistakes in art they can't correct.
If you'd like to see some of the work from other people Google #HisTober2018. The painting you see are my own creation. Having control over the tools used in art and writing can lead to career that is fofilling and rewarding for the child, after adulthood.
