Description - The Wonder of Girls by Michael Gurian

A revolutionary approach to raising girls, that combines groundbreaking research with practical parenting advice. A book not just for parents, but for anyone who cares for, educates or guides the lives of girls and women. Michael Gurian presents an innovative approach to raising girls, one that applies the latest research on brain science, biology and hormones to break down contemporary myths about girls and girlhood. In his follow up from THE WONDER OF BOYS he present equally explosive revelations about the hormonal system and brain system of developing girls. Drawing on the latest research, he discloses the secrets of the female brain (including how and why it differs from the male brain) and shows how biology, along with socialisation, influences the way girls approach life. Gurian argues that girls are impelled by a biological need to be intimate and that our materialistic, individualistic and gender-polarised culture thwarts this fundamental imperative. In a thoughtful, accessible manner, he covers every stage of growth from birth to young womanhood, outlining what girls need and how both fathers and mothers can support these needs.
