Good for Boys Good for All

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.”
