A Field Guide to Boys and Girls is the only book to answer these common questions and many others, addressing the special needs of boys and girls all in one volume. Susan Gilbert offers a fresh examination, based on the latest research, of the topic of gender development, showing that there are in fact natural differences between boys and girls -- and how parents can use this information to raise their children the best way possible (a "Suggestions for Parents" section ends each chapter).

Looking at the stages boys and girls go through from fetal development to adolescence, Susan Gilbert tells parents things about their children they might never have known -- for example, that boys cry more frequently, and that girls make more eye contact, eliciting more conversation from parents, a fact that allows girls to speak earlier than boys.

Outlining the differences simply and clearly, Susan Gilbert shows parents how to nurture the areas in boys and girls that may be slower to develop, such as math skills in girls and language skills in boys, and how to deal with the challenges they face as their children grow up.

As pioneering gender researcher Carol Nagy Jackson, Ph.D., says in her foreword, "Scientists have not always been able to translate their findings into usable information for the general public....

This 'field guide' provides a missing link." In talking to a variety of educators, psychologists, and behavioral pediatricians, Susan Gilbert has amassed all the most important current thinking and practices on gender, translating the findings into easy-to-use advice. A Field Guide to Boys and Girls is a vital tool that no parent can afford not to read.

As a young girl I excelled in math and had many problems with learning language.Also I played with trucks and guns as a child with boys and other girls as well.An "expert" has yet to explain girls who are agressive,excell in mechanics and math and play with trucks as children.I believe there is a comspiracy out there against women,the post feminist era has been wrought with books about women being passive,sexless, fearful and unable to excell in math,unable to fend for themselves and unable to find themselves through mazes. Interesting how the writer is a woman and many are probably because they want other women to have the same self doubt they have.What we need are books that inspire young women, books that nuture their natural HUMAN aggressiveness rather than view it as unnatural or unbecoming.This book is just another Mars and Venus revamped as baby Mars and Venus. Girls do not need to be boxed into a sub social group,what they need is a book that helps them with their individual strengths as INDIVIDUALS!

This wasn't worth buying, and I wish it was worth returning... How can it be "cutting-edge" when it was published in the 1970's....
