This is an edited version of an earlier episode.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 episode, Dr. Becky has a real, say-it-how-it-is discussion about parenthood with one of her favorite new friends, Myleik Teele. 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.Join Good Inside Membership: https://bit.ly/3cqgG2AFollow Dr. Becky on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/drbeckyatgoodinsideSign up for our weekly email, Good Insider: https://www.goodinside.com/newsletterOrder Dr. Becky's book, Good Inside: A Guide to Becoming the Parent You Want to Be, at goodinside.com/book or wherever you order your books.Today’s episode is brought to you by the following sponsor: Frida Baby’s All-In-One Potty Kit has everything you need for a successful potty process — including exclusive tips from Dr. Becky.

It's time to drop some poop truths: Everyone poops. Everyone prefers to poop in their own home. And, whether we want to talk about it or not, pooping matters!

Meltdowns.... they seem to always happen at the absolute wrong time or worse yet in the most public of ways. Whether it's too much sugar, not enough sleep, or just a phase doesn't really matter when we as parents are just trying to get from point A to point B. Dr. Becky talks to a father of two young girls who remembers the lessons of his childhood, a time when there were things to cry about and not getting exactly what you wanted was not one of them. So how can he do it differently and not feel so triggered by his daughter's behavior?

What is it about car trips that are so triggering to us as parents? Is it the bathroom break just minutes into the drive? The need to pack every toy in the house? Or the ever-present threat of traffic? (If only we had left 10 minutes earlier!) This week Dr. Becky talks through the woes of a long car trip with a father of two young kids and his struggles not to channel his own father when he's behind the wheel. Join Good Inside Membership: https://bit.ly/3cqgG2AFollow Dr. Becky on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/drbeckyatgoodinsideSign up for our weekly email, Good Insider: https://www.goodinside.com/newsletterOrder Dr. Becky's book, Good Inside: A Guide to Becoming the Parent You Want to Be, at goodinside.com/book or wherever you order your books. Today’s episode is brought to you by the following sponsor: Outschool’s online learning platform has over 150,000 live interactive classes—it’s the perfect way to keep your kids engaged in learning and fun as they transition from summer back to school.

You’re a good parent if you drink coffee while pregnant. You’re a good parent if you don’t breastfeed. You’re a good parent if you drag your kid to soccer practice… and then let them quit the team mid-season. This week’s podcast guest, award-winning economist Emily Oster, isn’t saying these things to make you feel better. She’s got the data to back it up. Frustrated by all of the “rules” she encountered as a mom-to-be, she researched popular parenting advice and discovered just how much of it is misguided or flat-out wrong. As Dr. Becky and Emily discuss her most surprising discoveries over the years, they demonstrate the power of data to deshame our parenting choices. You’ll leave the episode with your own version of, “I’m a good parent who _______.” For more information, subscribe to Emily’s newsletter ParentData on https://www.parentdata.org/ and check out her three books: “Expecting Better,” “Cribsheet,” and “The Family Firm.” Join Good Inside Membership: https://bit.ly/3cqgG2A Follow Dr. Becky on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/drbeckyatgoodinside Sign up for our weekly email, Good Insider: https://www.goodinside.com/newsletter Pre-order Dr. Becky's upcoming book, Good Inside: A Guide to Becoming the Parent You Want to Be, at goodinside.com/book or wherever you order your books.
Independent play isn’t just for our kids. It’s for us, too. Let’s be real: We all need a break from 24/7 caregiving to show up as the parents we want to be. But how do you actually help kids feel comfortable and confident playing alone—not to mention reduce your own guilt about not joining in? Lizzie Assa, the play expert behind the Workspace for Children, joins Dr. Becky on the podcast this week to discuss all things independent play. The two reframe what independent play means and explain why it looks different for every kid. Then, they model simple, actionable strategies to turn “quiet time” into a reality in your home (yes, really). You’ll end the episode with tons of creative ideas for building your child’s independence and a deeper understanding of your own relationship to imagination, too.

Time-out. Dinner without dessert. No screen time. If you’re like most parents, you’ve reached your wit’s end and threatened your kid with one (or all!) of these consequences. Then the next day… they’re back to throwing blocks. How many times do you have to yell, “If you throw that block one more time, no ______!” What if we told you there was a better way? In this week’s episode, Dr. Becky explores the problem with consequences and how you can parent much more effectively without them. Don’t worry: This doesn’t mean letting your kid “get away” with challenging or dangerous behavior. It means embodying your authority, connecting to your child, and teaching them the life-long skills they need to manage big feelings. If you love the Good Inside approach *and* struggle with the idea of no consequences, one thing is true: This episode is for you.

Mom rage is real. Have you ever let out a primal scream in your kitchen? Felt the urge to drop everything and sprint out the front door? Dr. Becky and fellow psychotherapist Anna Mathur are right there with you. And they’re fired up to tell a new story about what this anger means: Mom rage is a sign of unmet needs. In this week’s episode, the two share a raw, real conversation on parental rage—exploring how shame, self-blame, and societal expectations of selfless parenting run many of us, especially mothers, into the ground. They share thoughtful reframes on what it means to be a “good parent,” along with practical strategies on how to check-in with your needs before you burn out.

Rethinking Bossy

Rethinking Bossy

2022-07-1930:319

Raise your hand if you have a child who likes to take charge. Now keep your hand raised if you’ve ever snapped “Stop being so bossy!” Hand still up? Well, Dr. Becky’s is too. And here’s the thing: You’re not a bad parent. And your kid’s not a bad kid. You have a good kid who has a hard time with flexibility. In this week’s episode, Dr. Becky discusses how to help your assertive child build the skills they need without shutting down their strong sense of self. She offers a new framework for “bossiness” and, as always, pairs her big ideas with practical parenting strategies you can use in your home right away. Two things are true: You can love that your child knows what they want *and* teach them how to make space for what others want, too.

America’s child care system is broken. Parents are struggling to find care and centers are struggling to provide care, which means our kids are struggling, too. How did we get into this mess… and how do we fix it? In today’s episode, Dr. Becky talks with Gloria Riviera—a journalist, mom of three, and podcast host of “No One Is Coming to Save Us”—about why caring for our kids is a systemic issue. With personal stories, data, and practical calls-to-action, their conversation will not only help you feel less alone in your struggles as a caregiver, but also give you tools for change.

Missing Life Before Kids

Missing Life Before Kids

2022-07-0531:365

If you ever miss your life before parenthood, you’re not alone. And you’re not a bad parent. We gain so much when we have children and, at the same time, there’s also a lot of loss. Friendships change. Spontaneous plans are replaced by a million logistics. Just trying to drink your coffee while it’s hot becomes a challenge! This week, Dr. Becky hears from three parents who feel out of touch with things they loved about their pre-child selves and lives. She deshames their experiences and shares practical strategies rooted in a core Good Inside principle: Seeing the person under the parenting. From befriending guilt to exploring what lights you up inside, this episode will empower you to show up as the parent you want to be—by tapping into the person you want to be.

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.

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.

such a great episode! I love the practical strategies. I keep telling everyone "Yes! sharing IS caring, but caring is NOT only sharing! we can care in other ways!" but I really would like to have a child who is compassionate and can play nicely with her / his friends.

I loved this episode. I listened to it once before but decided to listen again given all that's going on and it resonates so well. I lost my grandfather when I was 5. He passed away in his sleep. For years after that I had trouble sleeping because I was worried I'd wake up to see my parents and loved ones are dead. I still am anxious about this! but learnt to live with it. I am glad I'm equipped to discuss this hard topic with my kids when they start asking questions. Thank you once again Dr. Becky.

What we do with our kids is teach them firearm safety with nerf guns. Keep the finger off the trigger, never point at a person, act as if the gun is alwaysloaded, real guns are for catching food and protecting. Aslo, of course don't touch. Real guns are for killing. We live in the foothills so it may be different for us. idk. I think our kids will fear what we fear.
