Join us for this incredible interview with Dr. Leonard Sax, MD Phd and author, as he guides us to help both boys and girls deal with motivation, societal pressures, and school pressures.

Dr. Leonard Sax delves into the scientific literature and draws on more than twenty years of clinical experience to explain boys and girls achieve differently school and are disengaged at home. He shows how social, cultural, and biological factors have created an environment that is literally toxic to boys. He also presents practical solutions, sharing strategies which educators have found effective in re-engaging these children at school, as well as handy tips for parents about everything from homework, to videogames, to medication.
