How to Understand and Talk with Boys

Please join Kathryn Barnes and other Upper School parents in discussing Adam Cox’s insightful and instructive book, Cracking the Boy Code.

He draws on his experience and research to explain the key to communicating with boys and provides straightforward techniques to do so.

“When all else fails, you can rely on a precious human commodity — truthfulness. When we are truthful, we are also authentic, and often a little vulnerable. Boys sense this about us, and recognize when we have dropped our defenses. In response, they feel more comfortable dropping their own. Boys respond well to people that walk the walk, as well as those who talk the talk.” — from Cracking the Boy Code
