Post image for Learn the differences between the minds of girls and boys at MPCSD talk on Feb. 28

The next MPCSD Parent Education Speaker Series, titled “The Minds of Boys and Girls”, will be on  Wednesday, February 28, 2018, 6:30 p.m., at the Hillview PAC.  In this inspirational, practical, and humorous presentation, renowned educator, family counselor, and New York Times bestselling author Michael Gurian focuses on helping boys and girls across the gender spectrum 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, therapists, and others can care for and support the needs of our children.

Based on more than 30 years of research and counseling practice, Michael traces how a child’s learning mind grows, how the genders learn and grow differently, how acculturation influences boys and girls, and how crucial school success has become to life success.

Following the event, Michael’s book will be available for purchase, which he will sign.

Light refreshments and beverages will be served. Childcare will be available for potty-trained children.
