Reviews

"Practical and research-based, Parenting Beyond Pink-and-Blue is a terrific guide for parents who want to do the best for both their sons and daughters."
-Lise Eliot, PhD, author of Pink Brain, Blue Brain

"Whether you are a parent who believes that boys and girls are 'just different' or a parent who believes that gender differences are all 'just culture, ' you will find valuable science and advice in Parenting Beyond Pink & Blue."
-Lynn S. Liben, Distinguished Professor of Psychology at Pennsylvania State University "Christia Spears Brown has hit a home run! Unlike many parenting books, this one is based on scientific evidence and conveyed in an engaging writing style. If you want your child to grow up to have opportunities unconstrained by old-fashioned gender stereotypes, this is the book for you."
-Prof. Janet Shibley Hyde, University of Wisconsin--Madison, and author of Half the Human Experience: the Psychology of Women "Parents want to raise strong and competent daughters and sons, but how can they know what to do and not do when they are bombarded with messages about the 'natural' traits and abilities of boys and girls. Christia Spears Brown provides great guidelines for helping all children develop their unique talents by avoiding the traps set by our beliefs about gender differences. It is great read for concerned parents, grandparents, teachers, and others."
-Dr. Diane F. Halpern, Dean of Social Sciences at Minerva Schools and KGI and McElwee Family Professor of Psychology at Claremont McKenna College
