Dr. Michael Gurian has studied and served children for thirty years. In the Wonder of Girls (2002), he presented a science-based approach to raising healthy and successful daughters. In the Minds of Girls, he pioneers new and intuitive approaches to health and wellness in all three important areas of girls’ development: nature, nurture, and culture. As many girls struggle with digital and social complexities in our families and in our communities, this book is timely, powerful, and practical.
Its nine chapters help you protect girls from environmental toxins and digital addiction; provide best practices for improving girls’ STEM learning and activating their leadership and resilience; explore leading edge science based technologies for understanding female mental health, and may utterly change your approach to handling girl drama and bullying. The Minds of Girls combines accessible writing, passionate social advocacy, and proven practical strategies you can use right now to raise wise, happy, and successful women.
“The Minds of Girls is a very important book. In powerful prose and filled with practical strategies, it takes a fresh look at raising and educating our daughters in a new and complex world. Brain science is key to this book and Gurian’s ability to match science with real life is a blessing. I recommend this book to anyone living or working with girls and women.” —Daniel Amen, M.D., New York Times Bestselling Author of Memory Rescue and Unleash the Power of the Female Brain
