    “Boys are students: Men are teachers

    Boys are consumers: Men are producers

    Boys play with toys: Men work with tools

    Boys break things: Men make things

    Boys ask questions: Men give answers

    Boys are disruptive: Men bring order

    Boys run in gangs: Men organize teams

    Boys play house: Men build homes

    Boys shack up: Men get married

    Boys make babies: Men raise children

    A boy won’t raise his own children: A man will raise his and somebody else’s

    Boys invent excuses for failure: Men produce strategies for success

    Boys look for somebody to take care of them: Men look for somebody to take care of

    Boys are present-centered; Men are time-balanced, having knowledge of the past and understanding of the present and a vision for the future

    Boys seek popularity: Men demand respect

    Boys are up on the latest: Men are down with the GREATEST.”

    PS- boys are a waste of time, and men are hard to find.

    boy walk for nothing while man work for something better
    boy never think otherwise while man always think the negative
    boy look for girlfriend to go after but man look for better wife
    boy get money for himself alone but man always try to get money for others
    boy go to man for advice while man look for better words to tell them
    man start for the family but boy represent the family

    the biggest difference between a man and a boy is that boys are learning lessons each day.

    I think…the biggest difference between a man and boy is that a man understand that its ok to ask questions, to know that he doesnt know and to be ok with changing. A boy thinks hes got it all figured out.

    I agree apart from boys ask questions men give answers, boys ask stupid questions, and men ask the right questions in order to grow.

    Boys want to change the way you look, Men want to change a woman’s last name!

    Boys will text you, Men will call you just to hear your voice.

    Thanks alot.Just to add that the major difference between a boy and a man is that boys say or act before thinking whereas men think before saying or acting.

    The difference between a boy and a man is boys do things because they want to do them, men do things because they need to be done.
