Join one of Australia’s favourite parenting authors on her first UK tour…

Parenting author and educator Maggie Dent is known in her homeland as the “queen of common sense”, for her capacity to explore parenting through a lens of contemporary research, practical wisdom and with a good dose of irreverent humour.

For the first time, Maggie is bringing her hugely popular seminar Boys, Boys, Boys: Understanding, Nurturing and Connecting with Today’s Boys to the UK for a short tour.

Maggie will share her insights, practical suggestions and passion for raising boys in our chaotic world for anyone living or working with boys – from early years through adolescence.

Statistics indicate that our boys are struggling in so many ways. They are more likely than girls to go to prison, die or be injured in a car accident, fail school, die by suicide and more.

Maggie believes if we can better understand the differences between boys’ and girls’ development, the way our boys communicate, what society expects of them, and what they need – we can turn these statistics around.
