Boys lose out

Data out of Canada, and referenced in the current issue of The Atlantic, documented that girls in the US, Canada and Great Britain get more parent time than boys in three “learning” activities: reading, storytelling and learning letters and numbers.

What a sad situation.  With summer reading programs kicking off now, perhaps this research will be a timely action trigger for all parents.
