    Is It Okay To Quit?

    Whether it's a soccer team, piano lessons or sleep-away camp the decision to let your child just "quit" can be tough choice to make. You question - did you do the right thing? Should you have pushed them to stick it out? Will this be an indicator of how the rest of their life is going to go? Deep breath, we are all in this together. In this episode, Dr. Becky talks it through with a mom who is questioning herself. Is it more important to have them stick to their commitments or better to prioritize our relationship with them?

    Are We There Yet?

    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.

    Emily Oster on the Real Data Parents Need

    Emily Oster on the Real Data Parents Need

    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.”

    The Inside Scoop on Dr. Becky’s Book

    Today’s episode brings you a totally new set-up: Dr. Becky in the guest seat. In anticipation of something *very special* coming to your shelves this September, Dr. Becky’s book editor Julie Will steps into the role of host to share the full story behind “Good Inside: A Guide to Becoming the Parent You Want to Be.” As Julie asks what inspired the book, how it differs from other parenting resources, and where the “Good Inside” philosophy began, Dr. Becky’s passion for thinking about parents, kids, and family systems will light you up, too. You’ll learn the full story behind her journey from practicing “behavior-first” parent coaching to creating the Good Inside framework—including her “aha” moment in the middle of a session—and why she believes there’s no one “right” way to parent. Yes, this is an episode about Dr. Becky’s book… and it’s also so much more. It’s the story of a paradigm shift in how we understand ourselves and our kids. It’s the story of a growing movement.

    Available on September 13. Pre-order your copy of “Good Inside” today at [https://www.goodinside.com/book/](https://www.goodinside.com/book/) and claim your exclusive gifts: an early release chapter and six sections of Dr. Becky’s foundational workshop, Managing Meltdowns.

    How to Encourage Independent Play With Lizzie Assa

    How to Encourage Independent Play With Lizzie Assa

    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.
