    This is an excellent book for parents, or even anyone interested in gender and children The author is a psychologist and mother of two young girls and so writes from both an academic and personal perspective Only 200 pages, it s just enough information to grasp her argument, become familiar with the most current research and pick up some great tips about how to encourage your kids to be their own unique selves.

    A great read for any parent interested in understanding how gender unnecessarily shapes our children and some practical guidance on how to balance that Definitely changed my thinking and interactions with my kid and made me muchconscious of how even subconsciously we impact on how our kids see the world We want the best for our kids, and this is a great place to start.

    This is something I spend a decent amount of time thinking about, and I figured I was doing a good job with Emmeline, but this book opened my eyes to so manyways that, directly and indirectly, I can influence her to be her best and to be wary of gender stereotypes A good read.

    The first half of the book is about the science, while it was interesting, I was worried that there weren t many practical applications being discussed That shows up in the second half, and it s a decent amount of recommendations, if a bit disorganized I d recommend to start reading at Part III, anyone reading this book voluntarily is already on board and doesn t need any convincing I was horrified at the return of the single sex public school, I thought we were past this separate but equal The first half of the book is about the science, while it was interesting, I was worried that there weren t many practical applications being discussed That shows up in the second half, and it s a decent amount of recommendations, if a bit disorganized I d recommend to start reading at Part III, anyone reading this book voluntarily is already on board and doesn t need any convincing I was horrified at the return of the single sex public school, I thought we were past this separate but equal crap There s a good reminder on reviewing books and the like, there s some pretty horrible sexism and racism in many of those earlier books I m an uncle and not a parent, so that and other gifting and behavior advice is useful for me.Sorry to say I can t recommend acomprehensive book on the subject, parents and people working with kids should definitely read something like Part III in this or another work

    Very interesting and inspiring read Well written with a nice balance of science and practical tips I am glad I have a hardcopy because I am sure I will want to reread the many parenting tips later on

    REALLY interesting read, gave me loads to think about Dr Brown pulls from her developmental psychology background and her parenting experience She makes a persuasive case that our society over relies on gender based labeling and assumptions, to the detriment of our kids academic, emotional, and physical potential The book includes lots of positive, practical advice She recommends the simple change of using the word kid when talking about children unless there s a reason to specify the ge REALLY interesting read, gave me loads to think about Dr Brown pulls from her developmental psychology background and her parenting experience She makes a persuasive case that our society over relies on gender based labeling and assumptions, to the detriment of our kids academic, emotional, and physical potential The book includes lots of positive, practical advice She recommends the simple change of using the word kid when talking about children unless there s a reason to specify the gender, so that we re not constantly emphasizing the label of boy or girl A child who s acquiring language attaches a lot of significance to that starts thinking in terms of team boy and team girl Brown offers suggestions when thinking about toys, sports, parties, and conversations And she gives examples about how to offer tactful correction when we hear stereotypes, either from our kids or from people who interact with them

    I appreciated the action items proposed in the book, but sometimes think the author felt the need to preach to the choir I am reading a book about parenting beyond gender types, so I m already on board The most useful aspect of this book was the way in which the author proposes discussing stereotypes with children I know _____ said, _____, but that s not true about everyone She then proposes offering a counter example that the child would understand and explaining how individuals are dif I appreciated the action items proposed in the book, but sometimes think the author felt the need to preach to the choir I am reading a book about parenting beyond gender types, so I m already on board The most useful aspect of this book was the way in which the author proposes discussing stereotypes with children I know _____ said, _____, but that s not true about everyone She then proposes offering a counter example that the child would understand and explaining how individuals are different Takeaway nugget, It isn t about denying that children are girls or boys It is about children not being defined by gender

    I cannot recommend this book highly enough It does such an excellent job not just demonstrating the research on how often gender differences are learned rather than innate but also focusing on the ways in which gender stereotypes are doing a disservice to our kids by not recognizing them as a unique individual who may or may not subscribe to every characteristic associated with their gender I m so grateful to be raising a sensitive boy and another who will likely be the same or different in I cannot recommend this book highly enough It does such an excellent job not just demonstrating the research on how often gender differences are learned rather than innate but also focusing on the ways in which gender stereotypes are doing a disservice to our kids by not recognizing them as a unique individual who may or may not subscribe to every characteristic associated with their gender I m so grateful to be raising a sensitive boy and another who will likely be the same or different in many ways , and this was both a sobering reminder of how that might be a challenge for him later on and an inspiration to support him in whoever he wants to be

    Some thought provoking stuff I especially appreciated that Brown took time to explain what we can learn from looking at the compiled results of lots and lots of studies, not just a handful with exciting results that make the news There are also some good practical tips on trying to reduce the number of stereotypes that you rely on, intentionally or not, and tips for how to interact with kids without putting the focus on gender Not exactly a thrill a minute, but fairly succinct and short enou Some thought provoking stuff I especially appreciated that Brown took time to explain what we can learn from looking at the compiled results of lots and lots of studies, not just a handful with exciting results that make the news There are also some good practical tips on trying to reduce the number of stereotypes that you rely on, intentionally or not, and tips for how to interact with kids without putting the focus on gender Not exactly a thrill a minute, but fairly succinct and short enough to read cover to cover

    Starting with one quibble for a book about stereotyping, there s a lot of generalising about how parents act However, that doesn t take away from the research in the book, or the easy to read way it is presented There are definitely things I m going to consider in my own parenting, and I was fascinated and a little horrified to read about Stereotype Threat and the implications I d recommend it to other parents and teachers as well as those interested in gender issues.
