What should I say when my kid is afraid?
How do we help our children face what feels scary? In this episode, Dr. Becky hears from three parents looking for ways to help their kids work through fears. She shares why kids develop fears, the significance of how we respond to their fears, and nearly 10 strategies to help them cope—from retelling the story of what happened to naming conflicting feelings (like scared and excited) with "parts language."
How do I handle screen time with my kids?
Screen time for kids is tricky: While we love the guaranteed down time it provides, we don't love the addictive nature, the meltdowns, or the protests... Tune in as Dr. Becky answers your pressing questions about what's really happening during screen time, what strategies you can use to manage it, and why it never feels like enough -for any of us.
Are tantrums normal?
Tantrums are normal. Dr. Becky would even argue they’re healthy. In the moment, of course, tantrums feel awful, exhausting, and inconvenient. In this episode, Dr. Becky answers three parents’ questions about navigating tantrums and teaches strategies to help you feel more equipped and in control.
Why won't my kids listen to anything I say?
When parents talk about listening, we're not really talking about listening. We're talking about compliance. In this episode, Dr. Becky hears from three parents about their struggles with “listening” and offers different strategies for ways to improve cooperation.
After following Dr Becky on Instagram, I was so excited for this podcast, and it is already even better than I had anticipated! Her information is super informative and her suggestions and scripts are natural and so unbelievably helpful. Thank you Dr Becky for everything you do!

Amazing- the most useful parenting podcast!
I love that Dr Becky explains complicated concepts in such an easy to understand way.....and that her podcast is full of practical parenting tips. I won’t lie, I listen to each episode a few times, hoping the tips will stay in my sleep deprived brain! Managed to get hubby on board with listening too. Thank you Dr Becky for short, concise, ‘tool kit’ filling episodes!
Highly recommend to all parents
Dr Beckys approach to parenting is incredible and I have found her podcasts beyond valuable. I have had great success utilising her approaches and it has allowed me to be more empathetic and understanding of the reasons behind my children’s actions.
