Turning conventional thinking about gender differences on its head, Lise Eliot issues a call to close the troubling gaps between boys and girls and help all children reach their fullest potential. Drawing on years of exhaustive research and her own work in the field of neuroplasticity, Eliot argues that infant brains are so malleable that small differences at birth become amplified over time as parents, teachers, and the culture at large unwittingly reinforce gender stereotypes. Indicating points of intervention where social pressures can be minimised, she offers concrete solutions for helping everyone grow into wellrounded individuals.... to face in our house: Julia reading stacks of books while the boys fought over who got to use the keyboard or Xbox controller. ... Nearby sits Austin, struggling hard to add another word to his terse tale about mustard and ahot sos [sauce].
