Videos and DVDs
In this video seminar, popular Australian parenting author, educator and resilience specialist Maggie Dent talks about giving boys a great start, from birth to eight. Statistically many boys are struggling and giving them a great start matters so much. A former teacher and counsellor, Maggie - who has four adult sons - draws on current research, common-sense wisdom and her own experience to discuss what boys need at home and at school to thrive. In the presentation, Maggie discusses many aspects of raising and educating boys including: character building ; childrens temperament (roosters and lambs) ; communication strategies at home and school ; dealing with techlogy ; risk-taking ; play ; failure ; understanding boy anger ; self-regulation ; how to discipline boys without shaming them, and much more. Maggie explores what parents and other 'boy champions' - early years educators, teachers, coaches, allied health professionals, carers and others - can do to help more of our boys shine in our chaotic, confused, rapidly changing world.
