How do I handle screen time with my kids?
Screen time for kids is tricky: while we love the guaranteed down time, we don't love the addictive nature, the meltdowns, 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 all 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.
Great practical parenting tips
I love how Dr Becky doesn’t pretend it’s always easy and acknowledges how messy parenting (and life) is. She provides easy to implement tips and reminds us that they won’t always work! I love the length of these podcasts too. Just enough to cover a few issues, but not so much that I feel overwhelmed or like I’m not going to remember it right. Thank you for taking your time to help countless other families. Free resources like these are really appreciated.
