The Blue Brain: Being Male, Young and Energetic Sylvia Kennedy-Godin

Special Topics:
Sponsor: Bennington Early Childhood Center
Instructor: Scott Noyes

Let's debunk bad science. The male versus female brain "research" is filled with myths. Most of the differences in development are the result of nurture not nature. This presentation will examine the few innate differences in male and female brains then go on to look at how parents, peers and society influence the wiring of our most complex system. The program concludes by asking if "rough and tumble play" belongs in childhood and offers time for action steps in addressing the blue brain.
