Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
The topic of gender differences usually comes up in child development literature. Much of it has focused on girls and their unique needs during development. In this book, however, Shaffer and Gordon, a gender equity specialist and a clinical social worker, respectively, explore in great depth the traps of male adolescence, especially the lack of "range of emotional expression." By discussing theories concerning boys' behavior, readers are given an excellent introduction to various psychological, sociological, and educational approaches currently used by professionals. In a light and breezy tone, the authors mix parental observations with their professional expertise to create an informative and practical book. Interesting sidebars, exercises, checklists, great appendixes, and a wonderful bibliography make this especially helpful to parents or professionals who work with boys. Highly recommended for public libraries.--Mee-Len Hom, Hunter Coll. Lib., New York Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
