Raising Confident Girls and Empathetic Boys

Raising Confident Girls and Empathetic Boys

How do we help boys step out of the gender straight jacket that says: You are superior to females, sadness and fear are for baby’s and girls and standing up for the most vulnerable is not cool or acceptable.

Recent data on girls found that between the ages of 8 and 14, their self reported sense of confidence drops by 30%. While many girls are receiving messages like "you can do and be anything", they’re also internalizing messages of “be perfect” and “do more”.

During this workshop I’ll answer some of these questions and we’ll discuss how we can all better address the needs of both boys and girls. I'll be approaching this workshop from the perspective of a family therapist who has worked with (mostly adolescent) boys and girls for two decades and as a parent of a 7 year-old boy and 11 year-old girl. I'll also be introducing the latest data and science on this issue.

I hope you can join us for a fun and supportive evening that is sure to be impactful and informative.
