Why Gender Matters | [Leonard Sax]

Why Gender Matters

Are boys and girls really that different? Twenty years ago, doctors and researchers didn't think so. However, an avalanche of research has shown that sex differences are more significant than anybody guessed. Gender differences are real, biologically programmed, and important to how children are raised, disciplined, and educated.

Publisher's Summary

Are boys and girls really that different? Twenty years ago, doctors and researchers didn't think so. However, an avalanche of research has shown that sex differences are more significant than anybody guessed. Gender differences are real, biologically programmed, and important to how children are raised, disciplined, and educated.

Dr. Leonard Sax addresses a host of issues, including discipline, learning, risk-taking, aggression, sex, and drugs and shows how boys and girls react in predictable ways to different situations. A leading proponent of single-sex education, Dr. Sax points out that parents and teachers would do better to recognize, understand, and make use of the biological differences that make a girl a girl and a boy a boy.

    "A Very Good Insight At The Little Ones In My Life!"

    I don't have any children of my own but I'm going out with a woman who has two teenage girls (11 and 13). Being the only guy in the household and always seeking to understand better the dynamics between boys and girls I found this book very very helpful and insightful.

    I highly recommend this book to anyone who is having to raise or deal with young people in today's society.
