Got a boy? Get inside info on what makes him tick! This unique presentation by Seattle Waldorf School teachers Melissa Borden and Tim Bennet combines the latest research, humor and audience participation to create an evening just for parents and caregivers of boys. Two veteran local Waldorf teachers will focus on the various qualities of boys – their strengths and special challenges – from birth through the teen years. How can we help our boys find balance and positive relationships, both within themselves and with the world at large? What’s the best way to support their learning styles? Their social skills? Their self-respect? Join us for a lively, interactive evening and leave with tools and ideas to help your boy grow to be his best.

Melissa Borden has been a teacher at Seattle Waldorf School since 1987. She holds degrees in drama and textiles. Tim Bennet has taught at SWS since 1985 and has studied painting and sculpture.
