Hi there, please could you let me know some good ...wise... books about bringing up girls. My little one is 18 months and I wanted to read something that gave me some good tips for the future. Any ideas welcomed.
Brains develop differently, also societal pressures are different. There are lost of similarities and perhaps we shouldn't stress the differences too much, but in my opinion they do develop differently and need different approaches (although, of course, doing right thing for individual is paramount).
Best I've read so far is Delusions of Gender, by Cordelia Fine - it acts as a useful counterpoint to all the 'this is just how girls/boys are' stuff, and is good at spiking the cod neuroscience on the subject.
