The way of boys : protecting the social and emotional development of young boys by Anthony Rao( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rao, a psychologist who has worked with young boys for two decades at Harvard Medical School as well as in private practice, claims that very young boys are being misdiagnosed with disorders such as ADHD and Asperger's and are often unnecessarily treated with medications that, he believes, should be a last resort (some boys, he notes, have even been thrown out of preschool for unruly behavior). With writer Seaton, Rao argues that many young boys who grab, kick, fidget, act out in school or refuse to make eye contact are simply being true to their brain development and hardwiring; in the vast majority of cases, Rao claims, these behaviors are healthy and normal, and shouldn't require medical intervention. The authors explain that boys do best with tactile, hands-on learning and more physical movement than most schools provide. Rather than rush to label and diagnose, Rao recommends a wait-and-see approach, noting that most behavior problems are temporary developmental glitches (with the exception of autism, which benefits from early intervention). Rao offers strategies parents can employ to help their youngsters learn to communicate, socialize and deal with anger and other issues. Though a bit heavy on the case studies, Rao's text is a valuable resource for readers determining whether to seek a medical diagnosis and a prescription or opt for a behavioral plan and a strong dose of patience
The way of boys : sports, movement, and competition( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Knowing the unique development of boys can help camp professionals better understand why athletic activities, outdoor games, competition, and physical improvement play a significant role in the camp experience for boys. The situation is further complicated by the fact that boys differ amongst themselves in temperament, which makes social relationships and competition a challenge. The Way of Boys: Sports, Movement, and Competition discusses how learning, emotion, attention, and achievement relate to physical movement and the importance of being in more natural camp settings
