Small Connections Matter Most

I'm fairly sure that a lot of children have been ignored while their fathers or mothers (but let's be honest, mostly fathers) chased after some dream, or some principle, that involved some degree of perfection, or beauty, or righteous correctness.  Lots of time the dream also had a ton of status attached to it, but the focus--always--is on the value in and of itself, and not on the status, externally.  Internally, status may be the main driver even when our doer doesn't know that.

Why is it that men are more prone to this than women?  Or, am I wrong?
