Dear Carolyn: My kids go to a school that has recently been trying to teach some age-appropriate lessons relevant to the #MeToo movement. In theory I think this is a good thing, but in practice I think they’re not doing it very well, mostly because they seem to think boys and girls need very different messages.

For example, they’ve repeated, “A boy should never hit a girl,” over and over, but I would prefer, “No one should hit anyone.” And, they did a “consent” lesson where boys and girls were separated, and the message to boys was, “You should not touch someone without their consent,” and the message to girls was, “You should speak up if someone touches you without your consent,” when I think both lessons should be taught to both boys and girls.

UK offers HPV vaccines to boys, aims to stop 100,000 cancer cases Some 100,000 cases of cancer could be prevented in Britain in the next 40 years by a vaccine against the human papillomavirus (HPV) that causes cancers of the cervix, mouth, anus and genitals, UK health officials said on Tuesday. Announcing the extension of a vaccination program to cover boys as well as girls, experts at Public Health England (PHE) said the immunization plan would prevent around 64,000 cervical cancers and nearly 50,000 non-cervical cancers by 2058.

I think boys and girls should be in different schools because some girls and boys do not get along with each Teachers just can't make the lesson interesting for boys and girls at the same time. It also helps boys with manners and girls being comfortable with boys . In conclusion we do not need

Do you think I should talk to my own kids about some of the misgivings I have about these lessons, or talk to the school, or just keep my mouth shut?

– Misgivings

Talk to both, please! The school’s mistakes – and I agree with your positions – are opportunities for important conversations with your kids. As always, be sure to listen as much as you talk, if not more, but certainly get things started by saying what bothers you and asking what they think.

And make an appointment today, please, to talk to the principal. Express gratitude for the willingness to take this on before you launch into your critique.

Re: Teaching: The school is not in error – boys and girls do need different messages. Young boys need to rein in their aggressiveness, while young girls should be taught to find it, train it, and have it on tap for when it is needed.

These Baby Names Totally Rocked the 1970s

These Baby Names Totally Rocked the 1970s Naming a child is one of the first big responsibilities parents-to-be have, and most try really hard to rise to the occasion. Some are lucky to know exactly what they want to name their baby. Others ask family and friends for advice, consider whether potential nicknames sound funny, and even read Roman mythology. And sometimes, […]

Why Boys and Girls Should Study in Different Classes. However, providing education separately for boys and girls has advantages that outweigh the possible inconveniences of this approach. Although the question about whether boys and girls should study separately remains debated and

Firstly, boys and girls have a different set of thinking methods, so by staying in the same class, they can learn from each other's thinking skills and thus improve their own critical thinking methods.

Re: Teaching: I strenuously disagree. Body autonomy is body autonomy. Consent is consent. Treating people as This Type or That Type is a gateway to shame, and shame is the stealth enemy of empowerment.

And if you think girls aren’t naturally aggressive, then you missed some brilliant soccer this summer.

Please speak up. Obviously, I don’t want anyone hitting my daughter, but I don’t want her thinking she can hit boys and not face consequences because “she’s a girl.” And with the more recent broadened awareness of boys as victims of sexual abuse, it’s really important that all our children get the same messages.

Re: Teaching: Make sure to also tell the school that BOTH lessons need to be taught to ALL children – boys also need to be able to speak up when touched without their consent or in harmful ways, and girls need to not touch anyone without consent. Violence against women needs to be acknowledged and taken seriously, but everyone needs to be empowered to speak up when they are violated.

Boys are hitting puberty earlier, partially due to rise in BMI, study shows

Boys are hitting puberty earlier, partially due to rise in BMI, study shows Girls aren't alone in hitting puberty earlier -- boys are, too, according to a study published Monday in the medical journal JAMA Pediatrics.

How a Camp for Kids With Diabetes Teaches Them to Live Life to the Fullest.
Camp Sweeney teaches kids the skills they need to live with diabetes. "Back then, instead of the glucose meter or monitors, we boiled our urine. We literally boiled it. I hated it that as a 12-year-old. You can imagine me having to tell my friends what I had to do. But after I went to Camp Sweeney, it didn't bother me." Since opening, the camp has served more than 30,000 kids living with the disease. It is the largest camp of its type in the world. At age 83, she still goes back — most recently hanging at their end-of-summer bash. To current campers, including Micah Harrill, she’s just Grandma Imogene.
