PARENT SEMINAR



THE MINDS OF BOYS AND GIRLS:
HOW TO HELP OUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS DO THEIR BEST IN SCHOOL AND LIFE

 

Calvin Christian School, a preschool and Kindergarten through 12th grade Christian school, is organizing a FREE parent seminar, paid for by federal title funds, on Monday, November 25 from 7:00-8:30 p.m. The seminar will take place in the Heritage Center at Calvin Christian School, located at 2000 North Broadway in Escondido. 
                           
In this inspirational, practical, and humorous presentation, renowned educator and New York Times bestselling author Michael Gurian (SAVING OUR SONS, 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, Michael 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 more than 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, Michael brings to life not only the developmental science of girls’ and boys’ minds, but practical methods by which to raise and educate those minds.  Michael also focuses on learning and life difficulties that boys and girls suffer as distinct groups. 

Michael 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 our children in a high-pressure world.
