MVLA Parent Education Speaker Series

Boys Adrift: Raising Authentic Boys Engaged in School and Life
Leonard Sax, M.D., Ph.D.
Tuesday, March 6, 2018 – 7:00pm - 9:00pm at Los Altos High School Eagle Theater
Drawing upon 26 years of clinical experience and scientific research, Dr. Sax will explore how social, cultural, and biological factors have created an environment that impedes the healthy development of many boys today. Dr. Sax will share concrete strategies to help us as parents connect more deeply with our sons and guide our boys to stay engaged - and grow into productive, self-reliant, authentic young men.

Dr. Sax is internationally recognized for his four parenting books, Why Gender Matters (2nd Ed., 2017), Boys Adrift (2nd Ed., 2016), Girls on the Edge (2010), and The Collapse of Parenting (2015).
