The Book "See Jane Hit" by Garbarino
According to Mr. James garbarino, girls used not to have power; but now girls are doing more sports and they are allowed to be more active and expressive.He points out that all children have aggressive tendencies and that if a girl has the right teachers and coaches, her aggression can be channeled correctly.
However , he says that we cannot just assume that this is the case.He says that nationwide we are seeing more girls demonstrate aggresive tendencies in cases where the girl is not given the encouragement and help that she needs. Some girls are hitting others severly; even to the point of beating the person up.He mentions that especially when a girl is abused she needs to begiven special help.
What is your take on this?
Personally I think children and teens need more teachers and mentors to guide them. Lately I have experienced some children not being seen or heard and then they seem to feel lost.I think that this author makes some interesting points.
