Understanding Adolescent Boys

Parents and Teachers are invited to an evening with Dr Ian Lillico.

Dr Ian Lillico (father of 3 sons) is a former principal of a secondary school (recently retired) and international consultant in gender, boys’ education and middle schooling. He has done action research in gender throughout Australia and New Zealand from 1992 and in the Northern Hemisphere during his Churchill Fellowship in 2000. Ian has a PhD (Education) and is a National Fellow of The Australian Council of Educational Leaders (ACEL). He now provides professional development for teachers, parents, students and a host of other organizations throughout Australia and internationally.

This presentation covers boys at home and at school. It gives parents and teachers strategies to help boys in their growth into adults and compares childhood and adolescence. The role of parents and the teacher, nature and other factors impacting on boys’ success are explained. This evening also concentrates on ways to get boys to talk about their feelings and explores ways that teachers and parents can keep communication channels open with their boys. It looks at the rites of passage for boys, bullying and relationships with girls. Ian outlines the changes in society over the last few decades and the impact this has had on our boys.
