The Minds of Boys and Girls
HOW TO HELP OUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS DO THEIR BEST IN SCHOOL AND LIFE
A Keynote by: Dr. Michael Gurian
In this inspirational, practical, and humorous presentation, renowned educator and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Michael Gurian (THE MINDS OF BOYS, THE MINDS OF GIRLS, BOYS AND GIRLS LEARN DIFFERENTLY!) focuses on helping children of all ages to succeed in school and life. Because boys and girls experience their home and school life differently, Dr. Gurian explores how the minds of boys and girls develop distinctly—and how parents, educators and concerned citizens can care for and support the needs of both daughters and sons.
Based on thirty years of research in brain science, education, and practical parenting, this keynote traces how a child’s learning mind grows, how girls’ and boys’ learn and grow differently, how acculturation influences boys and girls, and how crucial school success has become to life success. A marriage and family counselor in private practice, Dr. Gurian brings to life not only the developmental science of girls’ and boys’ minds, but practical methods by which to raise and educate those minds. Dr. Gurian also focuses on learning and life difficulties that boys and girls suffer as distinct groups.
Dr. Gurian has been called “the people’s philosopher” for his ability to dynamically combine cutting edge science with stories from people’s everyday lives. His presentation leaves audiences with a new vision of what boys and girls need both in school and in life, new tools by which to interpret the signals of our growing children, and new confidence to love and educate both sons and daughters in a high-pressure world.
