Good for Boys Good for All
August 20, 2020
Its not our job to toughen our children up to face a cruel and heartless world. Its our job to raise children who will make the world a little less cruel and heartless.
-L. R. Knost

A podcast from That Early Childhood Nerd features a discussion with Francis Wardle, author of the book Oh Boy! Strategies for Teaching Boys in Early Childhood. Here’s what they have to say about the podcast:

“We’ve all heard and talked a lot about the ‘boy problem’ in early childhood programs. The patterns we see of inappropriate expectations, disproportionate expulsions and suspensions and ‘discipline problems’ among young children assigned male at birth should concern us all.

[On the podcast] Francis Wardle [discusses] concerns and solutions. HINT: What is ‘good’ for these boys benefits all children.”

"This is not just a book, it's a story…a story of hope for young boys attending childcare in any type of setting. It's a story that sends a message to our industry that we need a paradigm shift—to our thinking, our training, and our hiring—to recognize the gender imbalance that is putting young boys at great risk of failure. It's a story that urges us as a field to better understand the specific complexities of caring for young boys so that we may fulfill our ultimate promise to provide the highest quality of care possible to all children."
– Jerry Parr, President/CEO Willow Tree Early Education Team
