More and more research indicates that understanding the differences between boys and girls is an important component of good parenting. Rather than adopting the "boys will be boys" attitude, however, parents must become gender sensitive -- what are the real differences between boy behavior and girl behavior? What behavior is acceptable, what is not? And when boys are aggressive, and girls are mean, it's helpful for parents to be fluent in the language of children and capable of translating behavior into words. A look at gender's role as well as practical, hands-on "translation techniques" is the focus of this workshop.
