Dr. Michael Gurian has studied and served girls and their families for thirty years. In Boys and Girls Learn Differently (2000), The Wonder of Girls (2002), and Leadership and the Sexes (2008), he blew the lid off contemporary thinking on how to help girls become strong, confident, and successful women. The Minds of Girls provides parents, educators, and mentors with a new understanding of who girls are, what they need, and how to raise them to their full potential. The book focuses on brain-based research and practical strategies growing from that science, including tools that have proven successful in the Gurian Institute¿s programs and interventions throughout the world.Noting an uptick in female depression and anxiety over the last two decades, Gurian provides assets for epigenetic analysis (gene testing) and ways to protect girls from environmental neurotoxins (in food, lotions, and other nearby products). A father of two grown daughters, he helps parents and others become citizen scientists on a girl¿s behalf. In areas of technology use, screen time and social media, he provides specific guidelines girls¿ themselves are likely to follow as they become scientists of their own development.Gurian provides a road map for raising healthy girls. His practical analysis and tools for helping with `girl drama¿ will surprise some readers as he shows how drama often builds emotional boundaries and helps the brain become resilience. Because Gurian has worked with Fortune 500 companies in tech and engineering fields to help advance women, his insights on how to build better math, science, and technology success for girls provide a rich new call to action for parents and school systems.Always inspiring, at times humorous, and always practical, The Minds of Girls is a parent¿s bible for raising healthy and resilient daughters.

Michael Gurian's blockbuster bestseller The Wonder of Boys is the bible for mothers, fathers, and educators on how to understand and raise boys. It has sold over 400,000 copies, been translated into 17 languages, and sells over 25,000 every year, which is more than any other book on boys in history. To follow up on this first book, which launched the boy's movement, he has now written this revolutionary new book which confronts what he and a lot of other parents and teachers in this country truly believe to be a "boy's crisis". Here are the facts: Boys today are simply not learning as well as girls Boys receive 70% of the Ds and Fs given all students Boys cause 90% of classroom discipline problems 80% of all high school dropouts are boys Millions of American boys are on Ritalin and other mind-bending control drugs Only 40% of college students are boys And three out of four learning disabled students are boys So what can we do? Gurian has the answer in this enormously fascinating and practical book which shows parents and teachers how to help boys overcome their current classroom obstacles by helping to create the proper learning environment, understand how to help boys work with their unique natural gifts, nurture and expand every bit of their potential, and enabling them to succeed in life the way they ought to. Gurian presents a whole new way of solving the problem based on the success of his program in schools across the country, the latest research and application of neuro-biological research on how boys' brains actually work and how they can learn very well if they're properly taught. Anyone who cares about the future of our boys must read this book.

The final and conclusive book in the groundbreaking series on boys and their development In this climax to his series of landmark books about boys, Michael Gurian offers a powerful new program to help us give our sons a core purpose–a program based on building morality, character, career goals, the ability to form intimate relationships, selflessness, personal and community responsibility, and an accelerated process of developmental maturity. Gurian reveals how important purpose is for the success and happiness of boys and explains how a boy's core personality, nature, and genetic predisposition functions to create both strengths and weaknesses in their journey towards maturity. Includes an innovative program for support and interventions according to the unique needs, weaknesses, and strengths of each individual young man. This book is the follow-up to Gurian's bestselling The Minds of Boys Draws on the latest science and field research on how boys develop neurologically Gurian explores the unique issues boys must confront, and shows how their strategy for moral development and success in life is predicated on their nature and genetic predispositions.

The Story of Boys—Lost in the Twenty-first Century: 70% of all Ds and Fs go to boys 85% of stimulant-addressing medications prescribed in the world are prescribed to US boys Boys are falling behind girls in virtually every area of life 70 -90% of boys will leave the church in their teens and early twenties Searching for Tom Sawyer offers parents and church leaders a compelling vision and practical principles for how, together, they can change that storyline by forging boys into heroic men. “More than 70% of the young men who are raised in church abandon it during their teens and twenties ... Tim Wright examines the problem and offers real solutions to one of the greatest challenges facing the church today.” —David Murrow, author of Why Men Hate Going to Church “No one who cares for boys, and equally no one who cares for kids and families should miss Searching for Tom Sawyer.” —Leonard Sweet, professor at Drew University and George Fox University “Tim Wright’s diagnosis of why most of our congregations struggle to connect with guys is eye-opening and stunning ... As the father of three boys, I wish I’d had this book years ago. As the pastor of a congregation, I’m glad I have it now.” —Pastor Jeff Marian, Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, Burnsville, Minnesota

Bringing Up Bébé meets Last Child in the Woods in this “fascinating exploration of the importance of the outdoors to childhood development” (Kirkus Reviews) from a Swedish-American mother who sets out to discover if the nature-centric parenting philosophy of her native Scandinavia holds the key to healthier, happier lives for her American children. Could the Scandinavian philosophy of “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes” hold the key to happier, healthier lives for American children? When Swedish-born Linda Åkeson McGurk moved to Indiana, she quickly learned that the nature-centric parenting philosophies of her native Scandinavia were not the norm. In Sweden, children play outdoors year-round, regardless of the weather, and letting babies nap outside in freezing temperatures is common and recommended by physicians. Preschoolers spend their days climbing trees, catching frogs, and learning to compost, and environmental education is a key part of the public-school curriculum. In the US, McGurk found the playgrounds deserted, and preschoolers were getting drilled on academics with little time for free play in nature. And when a swimming outing at a nearby creek ended with a fine from a park officer, McGurk realized that the parenting philosophies of her native country and her adopted homeland were worlds apart. Struggling to decide what was best for her family, McGurk embarked on a six-month journey to Sweden with her two daughters to see how their lives would change in a place where spending time in nature is considered essential to a good childhood. Insightful and lively, There’s No Such Thing as Bad Weather is a fascinating personal narrative that illustrates how Scandinavian culture could hold the key to raising healthy, resilient, and confident children in America.

How do we build resilient children who can handle life's challenges? As parents today, we often feel that our role is to protect our children from the world: to cushion them when they fall, to lift them over obstacles, and to remove sharp rocks from their path. But controling a child’s entire environment and keeping all pain at bay isn’t feasible—we can’t prepare the world for our children, so instead we should focus on preparing our children for the world. “The solution is not removing impediments from our children’s lives,” writes Krissy Pozatek, “it is compassionately encouraging them to be brave.” We need to show our kids how to navigate their own terrain. If our kids face small hurdles, small pains, at a young age and learn to overcome these obstacles, they will be much better equipped to face larger trouble later in life. Early lessons in problem solving teach self-confidence and self-reliance—and show us that our kids are tougher than we think. Krissy draws her lessons from her experience guiding children in wilderness therapy and from her Buddhist practice—showing us that all life is as unpredictable as mountain weather, that impermanence is the only constant, and that the most loving act a parent can do is fearlessly ready their child to face the wilderness. For parents of children of all ages.
