Jump-Starting Boys: Help Your Reluctant Learner Find Success in School and Life, by Pam Withers and Cynthia Gill, is the first book on the market that empowers parents, helping them reclaim the duties and rewards of raising their children and to navigate the influences of school and media. It is no secret boys are falling behind in education, with fewer young men graduating from high school and enrolling in college every year. Filled with reassurance and support, Jump-Starting Boys offers positive, practical solutions to parents of preteen and teen boys who are underperforming in school and life.
Cynthia Gill was recently interviewed in her local paper, the Chanhassen Villager about writing and researching the book along with her sister, Pam Withers. When asked about the motivation to write Jump-Starting Boys, Cynthia responded, "Raising three sons and teaching school for 30 years made me aware of boys’ unique needs. So when Pam suggested we collaborate on a book aimed at increasing boys’ literacy, I jumped at it."
Pam will be on KPFA's Cover to Cover on 9/16 at 10am PST, and Cynthia will be on Let's Talk Mom Radio on 10/2 at 8pm EST
Too busy to read the book? Jump-Starting Boys is now available as a audiobook through Audible.
