There are differences between boys and girls.

Boys tend to cope with neglect and abuse by lashing outward. Girls tend towards internalizing that abuse.

So, the effects you see are different between them. Where boys are more likely to be outwardly violent, girls will do harmful things that are mainly harmful to themselves.
Girls do not internalize their abuse. Do not challenge me on that. You will lose.

Ok, please elaborate. The relevant statistics focus more on boys in that neglect and abuse of boys creates abusers, school dropouts, arsonists, rapists, and more many times the average rates.

The few statistics relevant to girls point more towards issues like promiscuity, depression, and similar issues.

So, please elaborate because I would love to add to my reasoning as to why single motherhood is a plague on society.
