Listen to this engaging talk given by Andrew Pudewa (founder & director of the Institute for Excellence in Writing) on how to inspire children to learn. Understanding how boys and girls handle stress differently, hear differently, see differently, etc. will help you if you're a parent, teacher, or come into contact with any child at any time. There are two parts, each about 45 minutes, but well worth the time. Just turn it on while canning peaches like I did, and you'll be through before you know it.
