Giving boys a great start in early childhood for anyone living or working with boys birth - 6
Little boys tend to be particularly vulnerable in the crucial early years, with a tendency to have poorer motor skills, weaker verbal vocabulary, more challenges in playing with others and poorer self-regulation than the average little girl.
In this webinar – for early years’ educators and parents of boys from birth-6 – parenting author and undisputed ‘boy champion’ Maggie Dent explores how addressing these vulnerabilities right from the start can set our little boys on a path to a healthier, happier, kinder, more resilient boyhood and, eventually, manhood.
Maggie believes that in many ways we are still unintentionally setting our boys up to fail in early years’ educational settings and in school. She guides ECEs and parents on ways to improve the outcomes for our boys.
Maggie will explore:
· The fragility factor that impacts little boys’ capacity to cope with stress
· Key physical, cognitive and social influences that impact boys
· The biological need for touch and movement
· Why boys get in trouble so much compared to girls
· How to guide boys to make better choices without shaming them
· Using warm, positive communication to coach boys about emotions & teach kindness and empathy
· Does my son need more time to shine?
· 6 changes that need to happen in how we care for and educate little boys.
This highly practical webinar will be an up-to-date exploration of one of Maggie’s most popular seminar topics. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions (you can submit a question after signing up, if you’re not able to join us live). Whether you’re a parent or an ECE – you will come away feeling better equipped to see the world through the eyes of the little boy/s in your life.
