Parenting Tweens and Teaching Consent With Hillary Frank
00:42:03
Let’s be real: Middle school is tough. Whether you’re the parent of a tween or having flashbacks to 7th grade, almost all of us can relate to the trickiness of pre-teen years. Body changes, hormones, first crushes, rejection, bullying, friend drama… There’s a lot going on. How can we support our kids (and ourselves) through the trials of tweendom? That’s the question Dr. Becky discusses with this week’s guest, award-winning young adult author and radio producer Hillary Frank. Inspired by Hillary’s latest project, a fictional podcast about middle school called Here Lies Me, the two talk about difficult peer dynamics and the foundational skills kids need to navigate issues like consent, harassment, and belonging. Their conversation emphasizes the importance of talking to our kids about tricky topics—even before they enter the tween years—and empowers you with practical strategies and scripts to have those conversations.

It’s Okay If You Don’t Like to Play
00:30:25
If you don’t like playing with your kids, here’s what that means: You’re human. There are so many parents who don’t feel playful, get distracted during kids’ games, or dread pretend play! And realizing that it’s okay to not like playing… Well, that’s actually the number one thing that will help you engage in it more easily. This week, Dr. Becky hears from three parents who struggle with playfulness and offers practical strategies for approaching play in new ways, including repurposing it for yourself. You’ll learn how to set boundaries, release guilt, and rediscover your own sense of playfulness—which will probably help you even more than it helps your child.

Setting Boundaries With Nedra Tawwab
00:42:24
Boundaries aren’t selfish. They’re self-preservation. If this idea makes you uncomfortable, believe us, you’re not alone! So many of us grew up learning to tune out our own needs in favor of pleasing others. Here’s the thing: Now, as adults, that circuit no longer serves us. If you feel exhausted, resentful, or overwhelmed… this episode is for you. Dr. Becky talks with therapist and best-selling author of “Set Boundaries, Find Peace” Nedra Tawwab about all things boundaries: what they really mean, where to start, how to set them, what makes them so hard, how to handle pushback, and more. You’ll learn the difference between “self-care” and “after-care,” why saying yes is just as important as saying no, and a ton of actionable strategies (including how Dr. Becky and Nedra manage their calendars to avoid over-committing). Remember: Your needs and wants matter, even when others have different needs and wants.

Breaking Cycles and Doing Things Differently
00:27:25
Parenting is hard—and parenting as a cycle-breaker is even harder. After all, if you’re raising your kids differently than you were raised, you’re carrying the weight of how generations before you were parented and acting as a pivot point for all the generations to come. That’s what it really means to be a cycle-breaker: The bravery and strength to say, “This family story… It ends with me. I’m starting something new.” The good news? You don’t have to do it alone. This week, Dr. Becky offers support to three parents who share their struggles around being cycle-breakers—from exhaustion to confusion to loss. She offers practical scripts and strategies, and reminds everyone to lean on each other, too. Remember: You are part of this community of intentional, cycle-breaking parents. Together, we can change the world, one person at a time.

Raffi on Curiosity, Play, and Treating Kids with Respect
00:45:44
Down by the Bay. Baby Beluga. Bananaphone. Any of these ring, ring, ring a bell? If so, it’s likely that this week’s podcast guest, Raffi, was the soundtrack to your childhood and might just be a go-to for your children now, too. The musician created songs for kids that were just as heartfelt and gentle as they were fun and silly—all inspired by his belief in honoring children as whole people. He recently joined Dr. Becky for a live conversation to share some of the big ideas behind his beloved music and answer questions from Good Inside members. The two discuss their shared values of compassionate curiosity, playfulness, and treating kids as unique individuals. Most importantly, they touch on a foundational truth: When we raise children with love and respect—when we see them as good inside—we help change the world.

How to Stop Being a People Pleaser
00:30:29
It’s hard to say no. Really hard. If you were raised to be a “good kid,” to be agreeable, to make other people happy… well, then it makes complete sense that it’s hard for you to prioritize yourself as an adult. Here’s the good news: This “people pleasing” trait isn’t all of you. It’s just part of you. And as a recovering people pleaser herself, Dr. Becky knows exactly how to connect with this part while strengthening other parts of yourself—so that you can set healthy boundaries, respond to pushback, and reduce guilt. Even better: This episode’s scripts and strategies won’t only help you stop the people pleasing cycle for yourself, but also for the next generation. Let’s model how to honor our own needs while staying connected to others, so our kids can do the same.

Raising Anti-Racist, Anti-Bias Kids with Britt Hawthorne
00:43:55
How do we talk to kids about race? Most parents are unsure when to start talking about it with their kids, what language to use, and how to unpack nuanced topics with candor. In this episode, Dr. Becky talks with anti-bias, anti-racist facilitator Britt Hawthorne about how, when, and why to start important conversations in your home. Together, they explore the difference between talking about race and talking about racism, what language and tools you can use with even the youngest children, and what to do when you encounter your own racist, prejudiced, and ableist thoughts. Britt also shares her own journey as a bi-racial woman and parent that brought her to this work. This is a not-to-be-missed episode that will leave you feeling equipped with so many new tools.

Sore Losing and What to Do About It
00:27:03
Raise your hand if you don’t like losing. Full transparency: Dr. Becky’s hand is up! Guessing yours is, too. It never feels good to lose… at any age, right? Of course, it also doesn’t feel good to watch your kid have a meltdown after losing, cheat in a game, or obsess over winning. We want to raise kids who are “good sports,” but most strategies for teaching sportsmanship just turn out to be lectures. Dr. Becky has a totally different approach. In this week’s episode, she tells parents that it’s totally okay if your kid hates losing or loves winning: The goal isn’t to change how they feel about losing or winning, the goal is to help them tolerate discomfort. Her game-changing strategies on sportsmanship will help you activate curiosity, deshame competition, and understand your child in an entirely new way. Remember: Your child is good inside, even when they’re having a hard time on the outside.

“Gentle” Parents Still Set Boundaries With Destini Davis
00:44:53
There’s this fear that honoring our kids’ emotions when they throw tantrums or break the rules reinforces “bad” behavior. That if we don’t use punishment… we’re just being permissive. Here’s the truth: There’s nothing “soft” about parenting with empathy. This week, parenting coach Destini Davis joins Dr. Becky for a total reframe of what it really means to be a sturdy leader. The two open up about their own parenting philosophy journeys and how they realized that building connection with our kids goes hand-in-hand with holding firm boundaries. As they answer callers’ live questions about tricky situations with their kids, they debunk outdated ideas on “shaping behavior” and share deep thoughts about what actually leads to change. Their lively conversation will give you practical strategies for setting intentional limits, tolerating your child’s frustration, embodying your authority, and—most importantly—trusting yourself in the process.

How to End Power Struggles
00:28:26
You ask your child to put on their shoes or brush their teeth, and you’re met with a flat-out “No!” If you’re like most parents, you’re familiar with the power struggle that follows: You insist, your kid resists or ignores you, you get frustrated, they get frustrated, and nobody wins. The good news? There’s another way. This week, Dr. Becky answers questions from three different parents about tricky moments of refusal with their kids. As always, she zooms out to consider the big picture: Why do our kids say “no” in the first place? Then, she offers actionable scripts and strategies to connect to your child’s experience, while embodying your authority as a parent. You’ll leave this episode with a game-changing framework for resistance and a ton of tools to increase cooperation in your home.

Navigating Food Challenges with Daily Harvest's CEO
00:38:00
You have an idea of how this parenting thing will go… and then life gets messy. Your toddler isn’t walking yet. Or your baby has food allergies. Maybe your first-grader needs extra support at school. What do we do in these moments when things don’t go as expected? This week’s guest, Rachel Drori—CEO of clean eating company Daily Harvest and mom of two —understands this struggle. When her oldest son was just nine months old, he had a severe anaphylactic reaction after eating cashews. She talks openly with Dr. Becky about the anxiety of raising a child with extreme food allergies and the impulse to blame herself. The two friends share coping strategies for deshaming our self-blame, finding control amidst chaos, and learning to trust your instincts as a parent. No matter what unexpected twists and turns you’ve faced with your kids, their conversation will remind you you’re not alone and equip you with the tools to handle whatever comes your way.

But Does This Parenting Approach Actually Work?
00:31:34
A part of you is skeptical of the Good Inside approach. Or maybe you’ve tried out the scripts and strategies, and it’s just not working. You might be wondering, “How does this actually help a child prepare for the real world? Is this how I should be parenting? Do I believe in this?” Well, you’re asking the right questions, and you found the right episode. This week, Dr. Becky hears from parents who are skeptical about this whole approach. She validates their very real doubts, fears, and frustrations. She connects to their hopes for their kids. And she gives straightforward answers to questions that challenge her beliefs. While this episode is full of scripts and strategies, it also brings up an important foundational idea: It’s okay to be skeptical of Good Inside. Your skepticism means you really care about how you parent your kids—and that means we’re on the same team.

When Your Tween Is Rejected
00:18:56
As our kids grow up, their peer lives become even more important to them. They also become more complicated. One reason: Tweens and teens aren’t just navigating tricky friendship situations, like rejection, in person… they’re navigating them on social media, too. With this in mind, Dr. Becky explores how parents can support older kids in today’s bonus follow-up episode to “When Your Kid Is Rejected.” She models how to be present with your tween’s painful feelings now, while simultaneously building their resilience for difficult experiences in the future. You’ll learn how to help your child in the moment while equipping them with life-long skills—from compassionate self-talk to mindful engagement with social media.

@TheOTButterfly on Parenting Neurodivergent Kids
00:45:19
Every child’s brain works differently. A scratchy t-shirt tag or excited squeals at a birthday party might be no big deal for one kid… and cue a *total* meltdown for another. What’s going on for kids who feel extra sensitive to sights, sounds, smells, tastes, or textures? And what can parents do? This week, Dr. Becky talks to Laura Petix—the pediatric occupational therapist behind @TheOTButterfly and mom to a sensory sensitive four-year-old herself—to answer these questions and more. They talk all about parenting neurodivergent kids, whose brains process the world in unique ways, and offer practical strategies to support their needs. Whether you’re familiar with terms like “occupational therapy,” “neurodivergence,” and “sensory processing” or hearing them for the first time, you’ll leave this podcast with a deeper understanding of how sensory systems shape behavior and why it’s so important to believe what our kids perceive.

If you’re thinking, “This sounds like my kid,” follow Laura on Instagram at @TheOTButterfly and visit [www.theotbutterfly.com/drbecky](http://www.theotbutterfly.com/drbecky) to learn more.

When Your Kid Is Rejected
00:27:56
Your child tells you, "No one played with me on the playground today." You find out they’re the only one not invited to a sleepover. They come home one day and say, “My best friend has a new best friend.” What do we do in these moments? In this week’s episode, Dr. Becky follows-up on her episode about Tricky Friendship Moments to answer your questions about when *your* kid is the one being rejected. She explores how to build a safe foundation so your kids feel comfortable coming to you with difficult experiences. Then, she walks through practical scripts and strategies to help them feel less alone in these experiences—including her three all-time favorite parenting lines.

You Shouldn’t Have to Choose Between Work and Motherhood With Reshma Saujani
00:43:49
Working moms are burnt out. And it’s not our fault. After two years of juggling Zoom calls, homeschooling, childcare, household chores, and chronic stress, it’s never been more clear that our system just wasn’t built to support caregivers. Reshma Saujani is ready to change that. This week, Reshma—mom of two, CEO and founder of GirlsWhoCode, activist, and author—joins Dr. Becky to talk about what recovery from a pandemic really looks like for families and why it’s on employers to “pay up.” The two not only get vulnerable about their own struggles as working moms, but also discuss practical calls-to-action for companies. Their conversation is an ultimate two-things-are-true moment: You can have a family and a career. Let’s fight for a system that makes room for both parts of us.

It's Okay Not To Share
00:28:33
Imagine this: You’re reading a book and your friend says, “Oh I’ve been wanting to read that! Can I have it now?” You probably wouldn’t hand it over mid-chapter, but offer to share it once you’re done, right? And yet, when it comes to our kids, we worry that if they don’t share immediately… they’re not a good kid. This week, Dr. Becky offers a completely different perspective: It’s okay not to share sometimes. She listens to three families’ different sharing struggles and unpacks what’s really happening when kids feel possessive. For each situation, she models actionable strategies to manage these tricky moments, while helping your child learn how to balance their desires with those of others. Remember: We want our kids to assert their needs *and* we want them to be kind, generous people. We don’t have to choose.

Gabby Bernstein Helps Dr. Becky With Her Anxiety
00:38:32
You’re feeling uncomfortable, your chest is tight, your mind starts racing. So many of us recognize this feeling: anxiety. But how many of us really understand it? Or feel capable of managing it? This week, Dr. Becky turns the tables and tries something totally new: She asks her friend Gabby Bernstein, international speaker and best-selling author, to join the podcast to help her with her own anxiety. As they both speak openly about their struggles with anxiety, Dr. Becky and Gabby dig into what our body is really trying to tell us in anxious moments. Then, they walk through transformative, tried-and-true tools for approaching our worries with compassionate curiosity—from simply saying “Hi, anxiety” to doing a tapping exercise. Their conversation is a powerful reminder about the connection between parenting and re-parenting: We must give to ourselves what we want to give to our kids.

Divorce Doesn’t Mess Kids Up
00:24:10

You can be that parent for your child whether you’re married, single, or co-parenting. This week, Dr. Becky throws out the outdated narrative that “divorce messes kids up” and introduces a new approach to supporting kids through separations. She hears from three parents navigating divorce and co-parenting, and offers deep thoughts and practical strategies on how to handle the unique challenges each presents. From transitioning between households to navigating different parenting styles, you’ll learn how to stay grounded, center your child’s experience, and embrace all of your kid’s emotions.

Monica and Adam Mosseri on Managing Separation Anxiety
00:36:21
Does your kid struggle to separate from you? Or maybe “struggle” feels like the world’s biggest understatement given the non-stop tears, screams, and clinging-on-for-dear-life that happens anytime you leave? You’re not the only one: Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri and his wife Monica get it. In fact, sometimes leaving their five-year-old son for date night feels more exhausting than relaxing. This week, the couple joins the podcast with Dr. Becky to brainstorm what’s going for their son when they leave and how to help him through the feelings behind his behavior. From keeping goodbyes short to telling stories from our own childhoods, the three talk through strategies to use both inside and outside the moment to reduce separation anxiety, increase safety, and ground ourselves (and our kids) in goodness.

Stories We Need to Tell With Jelani Memory
00:43:23
Are there topics you avoid because you don’t want to “go there” with your kids (or yourself)? What do you think would happen if you did? This week, Dr. Becky explores these questions and more in a raw, real, and powerful conversation with her friend Jelani Memory, father of six and founder of A Kid’s Company About. He gets radically honest about the most difficult aspects of his childhood—from being the only Black kid in class to having a strained relationship with his dad—and how processing these experiences led him to publish stories he wished he had as a kid. While his company helps parents talk about tough subjects with kids, Dr. Becky and Jelani reveal how stories like “A Kid’s Book About Shame” can be just as healing for grown-ups, too. You’ll leave this episode reflecting on the impact of your own upbringing, the power of “feeling your feelings,” and how to talk to kids about topics we all too often avoid.

“Your Haircut Looks Crazy!” and Other Not-So-Nice Comments
00:29:22
Kids say a lot of wild things. Sometimes nice and sometimes … well, not-so-nice. We’ve all experienced a moment where our kid makes fun of a friend, comments on a stranger’s appearance, or acts inappropriately. We know we feel uncomfortable, we know our kid didn’t *mean* to be mean, but we might not know what to do. Well, this week’s episode answers just that. Dr. Becky hears from three parents and walks through the nuances of responding to our kid’s rude behaviors. She models practical in-the-moment strategies to soften tension and outside-the-moment ones to help kids build the skills they’re missing in the first place. And, most importantly, she reminds parents that this behavior is all developmentally appropriate: You have a good kid, even in the trickiest moments.

00:40:21
Moms, you deserve space for yourself. If this sounds like a revolutionary concept… that’s because it is! In a too-busy world that constantly questions your good enough-ness, this week’s episode delivers a powerful message: You don’t have to do it all.

You’ll end this episode with practical strategies to shift the dynamics in your home and discover what Eve calls your “unicorn space”—time to explore what lights you up outside of your identities as mom, partner, or professional.

Stop Calling Your Kid "Defiant"
00:30:16
The biggest issue with “defiant” kids is our use of the word “defiant.” After all, labeling our children as “defiant” puts us in the mindset of seeing our child as the problem: They don’t listen! They’re purposely disobeying the rules! They always push back! In this week’s episode, Dr. Becky offers a total reframe: Defiance is actually a child’s struggle to regulate an urge *and* feel seen. Now, don’t worry—this doesn’t lead to taking an anything-goes, permissive approach. Dr. Becky shares practical strategies to put this framework into action, so you can show up as a sturdy leader, stay connected to your kid, and help your child build skills to reduce problematic behavior over time. Sounds like a total win, right? It is.

“She Can’t Play With Us!” and Other Tricky Friendship Moments
00:27:32
Unpopular opinion: It’s okay for our kids to like some kids better than others. After all, we want them to grow up into adults who can build meaningful relationships, which requires recognizing why they connect with certain people over others! Of course, we also want them to be kind, inclusive people. So, what’s a parent’s role in helping kids navigate tricky social situations? In this week’s episode, Dr. Becky talks to three parents about challenging peer dynamics—from leaving someone out on the playground to disliking a family friend’s daughter. She explains why curiosity is the most valuable social skill, and shares practical strategies on how to model it. Remember: We want to teach our kids how to think, not what to think.

Deep Dive: Lauren Bush Lauren of FEED on Cultivating Gratitude and Thoughtfulness
00:40:16
How do we raise our kids to be thoughtful humans who feel good on the inside, but also do good on the outside? The answer, it turns out, may relate more to the questions we ask than the lessons we teach. In this week’s episode, Dr. Becky talks with Lauren Bush Lauren, the founder of FEED, a social action business, and a mom of three. Together they think through ways to help kids develop awareness, perspective, and gratitude. They talk about the importance of teaching your child how to think, not what to think, and why asking questions that your child doesn’t have answers for is part of a strategy of cultivating thoughtfulness.

00:26:51
We need to change the narrative that motherhood is all about sacrifice. Here’s a new narrative: You can’t show up for your kids unless you show up for yourself. This week, Dr. Becky hears from three parents who struggle with self-care in different ways. She explores why this is such a common challenge for people, and how to approach each struggle with compassionate curiosity. You’ll leave this episode with thoughtful questions to consider about your relationship to your own needs and practical strategies to start fulfilling them. Remember, two things are true: You can take care of the people around you *and* take care of yourself.

Deep Dive: Myleik Teele on What No One Tells You About Parenthood
00:45:21
Becoming a parent is really hard. And part of what makes it hard is the unrealistic narrative about what parenthood should feel like. In this Deep Dive episode, Dr. Becky has a real, raw, say-it-how-it-is discussion about parenthood with one of her favorite new friends, Myleik Teele, a multi-hyphenate career woman, mom, and founder of CURLBOX. Myleik and Dr. Becky don’t hold anything back: They share their experiences of their transitions to parenthood, why the first year is so hard, and what they wish people told them before becoming mothers. The two walk through creating an “emotional registry” that goes beyond swaddles, bottles, and toys to consider *your* needs as a person, not just a parent. They talk honestly about what you may lose when you bring a new child into your family. And they share scripts for talking with your partner, so you can enter parenthood feeling connected. While no podcast episode can single-handedly make parenthood any easier, this one will help you feel less alone in all the tricky moments that are sure to come.

Deeply Feeling Kids Need a Different Approach
00:28:31
If your child escalates quickly, struggles to calm down, and hates talking about their feelings… there's nothing wrong with them. And there’s nothing wrong with you. Your kid is probably a Deeply Feeling Kid. In this week’s episode, Dr. Becky hears from three parents of DFKs and explains why these kids need a different approach—and what that approach looks like. She shares scripts and strategies to help you show up as a sturdy leader, put up boundaries to stop difficult behavior, and bring out the good inside your child. Dr. Becky also reminds parents that seeking additional support for your DFK is a sign of everything that’s *right* in your family: You’re willing to work through the tricky things, together.

Deep Dive: Navigating Pediatric Heart Disease With Greg and Kara Olsen
00:42:16
When former NFL tight end Greg Olsen and his wife Kara’s son TJ was born with a congenital heart defect, they had no idea what to expect. Their parenting journey has since been defined by countless hospital visits and numerous surgeries, but it has also been defined by hope and resilience. In this week’s episode, the couple talks with Dr. Becky about how navigating their child’s major medical issue has shaped them as parents, partners, and people. They share how to mentally prepare your child (and yourself) for unknowns, why “small wins'' keep them going, and how they’ve witnessed TJ and their other two children, Tate and Talbot, embody resilience.

Yes, One-Year-Olds Have Tantrums
00:25:53
Everyone talks about the “terrible twos,” but we rarely acknowledge the tricky twelve- to twenty-four-month stage. At one year, kids are rapidly developing: They’re exploring the world, figuring out how to express their needs, and testing limits. It’s messy, but here’s the thing: The more prepared you are for this stage, the more grounded you can be in those messy moments. In this week’s episode, Dr. Becky talks with three parents about the challenges of raising a one-year-old—from throwing food to throwing a tantrum. She emphasizes that our kids are not trying to irritate us, they’re trying to learn, and shares practical strategies for helping them learn in a safe environment.

Deep Dive: @sharonsaysso on Preparing Kids for Social Media and the Internet

There’s no one right way to approach technology with teens. But there is a framework: Instead of *protecting* your kid from the internet, focus on *preparing* them for it. In this week’s episode, Dr. Becky talks with Sharon McMahon, the woman known as “America’s government teacher” behind the popular podcast and IG @SharonSaysSo, about teaching her teens to mindfully engage with social media. The two walk through scripts for talking to our kids about technology and strategies for building media literacy skills. Remember: While we can’t control everything our kids see online, we can establish ourselves as a safe person to talk to about what they might find.

Let’s Stop Calling Kids “Shy”
00:27:56
When our kids are older, we usually define confidence as trusting yourself and not following the crowd. And yet, when our kids are younger, we often have the exact opposite definition: Why isn’t my kid confident enough to make friends at the playground? Why won’t my child leave my lap at a party? Why do they stay on the sidelines at soccer? In this episode, Dr. Becky talks to three callers about reframing shyness as a form of confidence. With practical scripts and strategies, she encourages parents to reflect on what shyness brings up for us, resist the “shy” label, and tell our kids that they’ll know when they’re ready.

Deep Dive: @busytoddler on Resilience and Academic Success
00:41:07
How do we help our kids learn to love learning? Well, guess what: It has nothing to do with success or achievement ... instead, it has everything to do with tolerating the frustration of the working process. The more we help our kids manage the feelings that come up as they work hard, struggle, and try again, the more they will embrace challenges and bounce back from failures. In this Deep Dive episode, Dr. Becky chats with Susie Allison, the childhood education advocate and mom of three behind @busytoddler, about teaching kids to embrace and even love the learning process. They share as many deep thoughts about child development as practical ideas for engaging your child in fun, enriching play. And most importantly, the two remind all of us that learning is a life-long process: As parents, we need to embrace our own "not knowing yet" stages, too.

We all want to encourage our kids' independence, but what about when safety is a concern? Focus on "family jobs": Your job as a parent is to set boundaries, validate your child's feelings, and empathize. Your child's job is to explore and express their feelings. In this episode, Dr. Becky talks to three parents about how to keep kids safe, especially when they push back on our boundaries. Whether they're refusing to wear a helmet or hate their carseat, she offers practical strategies and scripts to connect with your child inside and outside of the moment—all grounded in the framework of family jobs.

What to Do When Your Kid Is Bullied
00:25:48
When we hear about our kids being teased, bullied, or left out, it tends to bring up painful memories from our own childhoods. As a result, we often jump to helping our kid get out of that awful experience, saying things like "Say this to stand up for yourself!" or "You don't have to hang with those kids!" But these responses make a child feel even more alone. In this week's episode, Dr. Becky offers guidance to three parents on how to talk to their kids about bullying. She explains why confidence and connection are the best ways to support a child who is being bullied, and offers practical strategies to help your child believe in themselves no matter what others say.

It's about healing generational trauma, too. In this episode, Dr. Becky talks with the couple about their gentle parenting journey—and the important questions they've raised along the way about how this approach applies to their Black children.

How to Talk About Death with Your Kids
00:29:55
When our children ask us difficult questions like "What happens when you die?" or "Am I going to die?", we often get stuck about what to do next. Should we talk about it? Should we avoid it? Should we offer a euphemism? We often assume kids are too young to talk about death, but here's something to consider: It's *never* too early to talk about things that are already on your child's mind. In this episode, Dr. Becky explains why we need to be honest with our kids about death, so they feel safe coming to us with all kinds of tricky questions throughout their lives. She shares practical scripts and strategies to guide you through difficult, but direct, conversations on death, dying, and grief. Remember: This is an emotional topic for us adults too, so before pressing play today, take a deep breath. Honor the feelings and sensations that come up for you as you listen to this episode.

Deep Dive: Kristen Bell and Jackie Tohn on the Magic of Song
00:28:43
Did you know that the tool you may be missing in your parenting toolbox is … singing? Don’t worry, no musical training or ability necessary! Music is one of the most powerful parenting tools for tricky moments. Why? When we sing, we not only help our child's body regulate, but we help ourselves stay grounded, too. Plus when we sing a song to our kids … our kids start to repeat it to themselves. This is how kids learn to self-soothe. Total game changer. In this week's episode, Dr. Becky talks with actors, singers, and producers Kristen Bell and Jackie Tohn about using music to diffuse all kinds of challenging situations—from moments of hesitation to hurtful words. Listen to learn a few tunes anyone can sing and get a sneak preview of Do, Re & Mi, a new musical series on Amazon Prime Video from Bell and Tohn.

00:45:36
So many of us are navigating transitions right now: back to school, last days of vacation, or adjusting to commutes again. For Amir Nathoo, CEO of online learning platform Outschool, this regular season of transition is coupled with a few more big life changes: a second baby, the end of paternity leave, and the return to work (from home). In this episode, Dr. Becky talks with Amir about strategies that help us show up for ourselves *and* our kids in these times, such as thinking about "family jobs" and engaging in the expansive world of play. Their conversation explores all of the tricky feelings that come up during transitions, and how wiring our kids for resilience now prepares them to cope with these feelings for years to come.

Body Confidence Isn’t About Appearance
00:28:03
Every parent we know wants their kids to feel good about their bodies. But here's the tricky thing about body confidence: It has little to do with feeling good about our appearance, and much more to do with feeling good inside. In this episode, Dr. Becky talks with three parents striving to break intergenerational cycles around body image. She not only shares practical strategies for helping your child feel worthy from the inside out, but also explores how to mindfully engage with society's beauty ideals. As she highlights, raising our kids differently doesn't mean protecting them from these ideals, but helping them learn to pause, get curious, and form their own ideas.

My Kids Are Out of Control, What Should I Do?
00:27:29
When your child's actions and words seem totally out of control, it means they *feel* out of control. In these moments, kids need our help differentiating between their behavior and their feelings: They're a good kid having a hard time, not a bad kid doing bad things. In today's episode, Dr. Becky talks with three parents about navigating tantrums at their worst. She talks through trusting yourself as your family's sturdy leader (especially when family members don't understand your approach), and walks through multiple strategies to use inside and outside of the moment.

00:42:07
The pandemic is a hard time to be a kid. It's a hard time to be an adult. It's a hard time to be an adult with kids! In today's Deep Dive episode, Dr. Becky talks with infectious disease specialist Jessica Malaty Rivera and lawyer Joshua Rivera, who are struggling to break some parenting patterns after 18 months of living, working, and raising two toddlers at home.

How Can I Get My Kid to Stop Doing an Annoying Behavior?
00:28:59
If your kid recently started to spit—or do something else that you just want them to stop doing—it’s easy to get into a power struggle. Annoying behaviors often become a way for kids to assert their individuality and express big feelings. In this episode, Dr. Becky talks to three parents dealing with spitting and what feels like defiance. She offers actionable strategies for responding to these undesirable behaviors in ways that are effective because they speak to the motivation under the behavior. You don’t want to miss this one; the strategies Dr Becky models are easily generalizable beyond spitting—from potty language to screaming to any “Just stop it!” behaviors.

In today's episode, Dr. Becky answers questions from three parents on how to approach different struggles in relationships: from being a primary caretaker to balancing mental load to navigating clashing parenting styles.

What Can I Do When My Child Says “I Can’t Do It”?
00:28:41
Kids are constantly learning new things—from using the potty to tying their shoes to tackling a math problem—and, as we all know, learning is hard. Sometimes, the frustration of not-knowing-yet leads kids to “I can't do it!" In this week's episode, Dr. Becky talks to three parents about how to help a child through these moments with actionable strategies and scripts. (Hint: It's all about building up a kid's frustration tolerance, not solving the problem for them).

Deep Dive: How Do We Respond to a Child’s Pretend Weapon Play?
00:37:55
What do you do when your child pretends to have a gun? First, take a deep breath. There's nothing wrong with your child, and this doesn't mean they want to harm anyone. Young kids often go through a phase of pretending to have weapons as a way of exploring big ideas like good and bad, power, control, and more. In this Deep Dive episode, Dr. Becky talks with parents Nina and Tom, whose three-year-old recently pointed his finger at his parents and said "Pish! Pish!" She explains what's going on underneath pretend gun play, and models actionable strategies and scripts for responding in the moment. The three also discuss how to navigate delicate conversations around gun safety with kids, and why it's important to differentiate between pretend guns and real guns.

How Do I Handle Being Rejected by My Child?
00:30:44

When your child says things like "I only love mommy" or "Go away, I want daddy to give me a bath!", it's easy to feel like you're doing something wrong. Remember this: Your child's rejection is not a barometer of your parenting. In these moments, there's nothing wrong with the in-favor parent, the out-of-favor parent, or the child. In fact, your child's rejection is a sign that they feel safe enough in your presence to even express their displeasure. In this week's episode, Dr. Becky hears from three parents who are struggling with phases of parental preference. She gently reminds each parent of their goodness and provides actionable strategies to manage these tricky and often triggering moments.

Does Praise Have Unintended Consequences?
00:29:28

When our kids show us a new drawing, score their first soccer goal, or ace a test, we want to celebrate their wins. And when our kids are struggling, our first instinct is to build them back up. But here's the tricky thing about showering kids with praise in high or low moments: It wires them to look to others for validation, instead of learning to feel at home with themselves. In this episode, Dr. Becky talks to three parents about rethinking praise. She offers strategies for how to build stable, long-lasting confidence that your child will be able to access no matter what comes their way in life.

Deep Dive: Two Moms With Different Parenting Styles Raising a Strong-Willed Child
00:40:16

Raising a strong-willed child can feel like you're constantly locked in a power struggle. The same goes for parenting when your partner differs in approach. But here's something to consider in any relationship: When we prioritize connection over being right, we can begin to work together against a problem... instead of seeing each other as the problem. In this Deep Dive episode, mothers Jessica and Joanna come to Dr. Becky for advice on raising their opinionated daughter Jada differently from how they were raised, while navigating their own clashing parenting styles. As the three explore what's behind their tough moments with Jada, they discuss breaking intergenerational cycles, infusing difficult moments with playfulness, and switching up their rigid roles as parents. As always, Dr. Becky provides actionable takeaways for tricky situations—modeling scripts and strategies along the way.

I Struggle With Codependency. How Do I Raise My Kids Differently?
00:25:03

One of the best things we can do as parents is recognize the traits we need to repair in ourselves, so we don't unintentionally pass them on to our kids. If you grew up defining who you are based on other people's reactions, it can be hard to tune in to your own wants and needs. But it's never too late to change these patterns. In this episode, Dr. Becky hears from three parents with codependent tendencies working to show up differently for their children. She offers multiple strategies for rewiring your own codependence, while raising kids with a strong sense of self.

Talking With Your Kids About Private Parts, How Babies Are Made, and More...
00:27:24

There's no "appropriate age" to start talking about sensitive topics, like sex or private parts, with kids. When a child asks a question, it means they're ready for a (developmentally appropriate) answer. Of course, while many of us want to talk openly with our kids, few of us had honest conversations about these topics when we were younger. It's normal to feel stuck or awkward! In this episode, Dr. Becky walks through multiple scripts for affirming your child's natural curiosity about bodies, babies, and more without any shame, so they feel safe coming to you with all sorts of questions as they get older. Remember this: It's not our honesty, but our avoidance, that makes kids uncomfortable about their bodies.

It's hard for kids to share their parents. Siblings can feel like they're competing for the ultimate resource: your love and attention. While we can't get rid of those competitive feelings, we can help our kids learn to recognize and regulate them (and this of course is what leads to improved behavior!). In this week's episode, Dr. Becky offers several strategies to parents navigating sibling rivalry—from validating our kid's tricky feelings about siblinghood to encouraging cooperation to introducing mantras through play.

What Can I Do to Stop My Kid’s Aggressive Behavior?
00:27:12

When our child is kicking or biting someone, our first thought is probably, "How do I protect the other person?!" But here's something to consider: We also need to protect our child from associating their bad behavior with being a bad kid. In this episode, Dr. Becky advises three parents on how to respond to aggressive behavior while keeping everyone safe. She walks through distancing "the urge" from "the action," emotionally vaccinating kids for frustrating moments, and enforcing boundaries instead of punishments. In every situation, she gently reminds each caller that they're a good parent with a good kid.
