This practical volume examines how the female brain impacts on how a girl engages with the world around her, and plays a crucial and often gender-specific role in how she behaves and learns. It looks at the differences that exist between boys and girls, how the female brain differs from the male brain, and how all of this can impact on behaviour, learning and overall growth and development. Finally, using information from the earlier chapters, it focuses on three particular areas – emotions, relationships and schooling. It’s a girl thing provides us with a framework for creating social and learning environments that recognise the intricacies of the developing female brain.
