EDMONDS, Wash., March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Gregg Jantz, Founder of The Center, A Place of HOPE, and co-author of his recent bestseller Raising Boys By Design: What the Bible and Brain Science Reveal About What Your Son Needs to Thrive, will deliver his keynote presentation at the annual Royal Rangers "Lead" Conference in Dallas on March 14th. He will speak on the wonder of raising young boys and the unique challenges facing parents, teachers and counselors.
Packed with humor as well as doable strategies for those committed to raising and positively influencing boys, Dr. Jantz will deliver eye-opening examples of what's really going on inside a boy's brain. Based on both neurological studies of a boy's brain – and how it differs from that of a girl's – and biblical insights, Dr. Jantz will lead the attendees of the Royal Rangers National "Lead" Conference on a journey of discovery and guidance on how to develop young boys into productive and positive young men.
"Eighty percent of the D's and F's given in school today are received by boys. Boys are three times more likely than girls to be diagnosed with a learning disorder. We face challenges in how we are raising our young boys. Raising Boys by Design helps parents and teachers understand the differences of the boy's brain and how it affects their behavior and their ability to learn.
"Our studies provide us with powerful tools to improve the way we understand and teach our young boys. They have great application to those teaching and raising young girls as well. I look forward to a great evening with those committed to nurturing and developing young boys and girls at the Royal Rangers Lead Conference," Dr. Jantz said.
