We're talking about the many ways real parents can use Hand in Hand Parenting tools and what that looks like day to day, at your house and at our houses too.

Mar 20, 2019

Join us as we continue examining how nature, nurture and culture affects boys and girls, with social philosopher and author Michael Gurian.

On Part 2 of this series, Michael talks about how we can use what science says to raise resilient girls.

On this week's episode:

  • The way mothers and fathers empathise differently, and why this can be beneficial in building resilience and boundaries
  • Why fathering is essential for adolescent girls, and what happens in same sex families
  • How girls can get locked in perception and destructive thought patterns and how parents can help unlock this
  • Why nurturing our girls according to their nature builds resilience
