Online Book Discussion Groups

When the world shut down in 2020 and with it, my classes, I found myself finding time to actually read many of the books on my bookshelf that I, admittedly, had only skimmed over the years. And there was one book in particular that I really loved: Raising Good Humans by Hunter Clarke-Fields. It was one of those books that I devoured in an afternoon…blithely disregarding the author’s direction to read it slowly, one chapter at a time, over the course of 8 weeks. I loved it so much, I decided I would do just that. But I didn’t want to do it alone! So, I reached out to the parents who had been in my classes to see if anyone else wanted to join. They did! And the rest, as they say, is history!


My book clubs read (or listen to) one chapter each week and then meet online, once a week, for about an hour-long discussion. We have an evening group, which meets on Tuesdays at 8:30pm Pacific. There is a possibility for a midday weekday group, if there is interest.

We are slated to begin Tuesday, September 26, 2023.

These discussion groups are fee-free because I find I get so much out of the discussions, too. However, I do gratefully accept donations for hosting and holding the space.

Current Book:

I’m excited to delve into this book, as I’ve been a fan of Jen and her podcast, Your Parenting Mojo, for a while now. Jen isn’t a RIE teacher, but I think her philosophy of children and mine align tremendously. And I’m always impressed with her commitment to research, her authenticity, and her curiosity.
