Are you a father, a grandfather, a coach, a mentor, an uncle, a teacher, or a care provider who is fostering the development of littles in your life? We invite you to join our discussion this winter as we learn, share, and reflect together on better ways to fulfill our roles.

Don't have time to read (or listen to) the full book? That is ok, we welcome you as well! This gathering is as much about creating community as it is about discussing the books/concepts.

In March & April, we will be reading Good Inside: A Guide to Becoming the Parent You Want to Be by Dr. Becky Kennedy

This book reminds us of the importance of establishing a strong emotional connection with your child and fostering a foundation of security and trust.

Dr. Becky advocates for mindful parenting techniques, urging caregivers to be fully present in the moment, understand the child's perspective, and respond thoughtfully to their needs.

The book delves into effective and positive discipline actionable strategies, emphasizing the importance of guiding children with empathy and understanding rather than resorting to punitive measures. The goal is to create a supportive and nurturing environment for their overall development.
