Our Editor's Take

Dr. Becky Kennedy is out to rethink how parents raise their children. With her podcast, Good Inside with Dr. Becky, she makes the case once a week that, indeed, there is a better way.

In the trailer for Good Inside, the clinical psychologist and mom outlines what she believes is her specialty. And that's "translating deep thoughts about parenting into practical, actionable strategies." She wants the framework of her podcast to "make sense and feel good inside." Sure, tough love may still have a place in the 21st century. But based on the reaction online, there must be something to this more practical, soulful approach.

Dr. Becky Kennedy's Instagram posts first surfaced right when the pandemic hit. Her more profound technique for managing parenthood got an audience right away. It seemed to be what tens of thousands of millennials cooped up with their young kids needed to hear. She confirmed they were not, in fact, horrible parents, and they were doing a good job raising their kids.

Soon she launched both Good Inside, the podcast, and Good Inside, the online platform. Those tens of thousands of Instagram followers became hundreds of thousands of listeners. And the workshops she began selling at GoodInside.com made her wealthy. In 2022, Dr. Becky Kennedy released Good Inside: A Guide to Becoming the Parent You Want to Be. The book became a #1 New York Times bestseller. Time magazine called her the Millennial Parenting Whisperer in a June 2021 feature. These days, every flashy magazine article about her uses that term. But it's beginning to look like Dr. Becky Kennedy's approach to parenting may not be a fleeting trend.

So it is possible to think the Good Inside with Dr. Becky podcast could be a soundtrack of a new parenting model. Her methods may well be in use for generations to come.

Emily Oster and the Bad Therapy Conversation
American kids are struggling. And there's a lot of discussion around the reasons why. Is it smartphones? Is it social media? Is it a hyper-fixation on feelings and therapy? Economist, author, and host of ParentData, Emily Oster, joins Dr. Becky to discuss the latest book making the rounds in parenting circles, Bad Therapy. They delve into what parental authority is and what it isn't, how minimization of risk is not a life strategy for kids or adults, and how we can hold the idea that two things are true - we can be authorities who also come from a same-team approach with our kids.Join Good Inside Membership: https://bit.ly/3VzdNkHFollow 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.For a full transcript of the episode, go to goodinside.com/podcastTo listen to Dr. Becky's TED Talk on repair visit https://www.ted.com/talks/becky_kennedy_the_single_most_important_parenting_strategyToday’s episode is brought to you by Garanimals: Garanimals is the original mix-and-match clothing brand for babies and toddlers in sizes newborn to 5T.
