Summary: Boys Should Be Boys: A Headmaster's Reflections By Brian R. Walsh "Over the last quarter century, much has been written about feminism and women's rights, and that's as it should be. But what has been so interesting to me is to see how different women and men are when it comes to processing information and how boys are sometimes an unfathomable enigma to women - especially their mothers." These are the conclusions of a headmaster from thirty years of running two independent kindergarten-ninth gr
ade schools, one coeducational and the other all boys. In Boys Should Be Boys these observations are presented through anecdotes of actual school situations and, more significantly, through the voices and actions of the boys themselves. "This book is not only an essential operating manual for educators; it is a highly entertaining and valuable guide for all parents of boys. In an unstuffy clear fluid prose, laced with many anecdotes, he provides real insight into the educating of boys and their unique and very different ways of learning." John F. Lehman Jr., former Secretary of the United States Navy and member of the 9/11 Commission. Author of Command of the Seas "As the mother of two sons who benefited from Brian Walsh's wisdom, I am delighted that he is finally sharing his insights with a wider audience. Every page of Boys Should Be Boys reflects Brian's understanding of the special nature of boys from early childhood through adolescence. With clarity and great sensitivity, he tells stories that can help parents and educators alike nurture the best of boys and help them reach their full potential." Sally Bedell Smith, author of For Love of Politics: Bill and Hillary Clinton: The White House Years
