Her innovative work shows parents how to challenge inherited beliefs and behaviors and shift the paradigm of how we understand family dynamics.

Dr. Becky Kennedy, wildly popular parenting expert and creator of @drbeckyatgoodinside, shares her groundbreaking approach to raising kids and offers practical strategies for parenting in a way that feels good.
Over the past several years, Dr. Becky Kennedy—known to her followers as simply “Dr. Becky”—has been sparking a parenting revolution. Millions of parents, tired of following advice that either doesn’t work or simply doesn’t feel good, have embraced Dr. Becky’s empowering and effective approach, a model that prioritizes connecting with our kids over correcting them.
Parents have long been sold a model of childrearing that simply doesn’t work. From reward charts to time outs, many popular parenting approaches are based on shaping behavior, not raising humans. These techniques don’t build the skills kids need for life, or account for their complex emotional needs. Add to that parents’ complicated relationships with their own upbringings, and it’s easy to see why so many caretakers feel lost, burned out, and worried they’re failing their kids. In Good Inside, Dr. Becky offers a parenting philosophy, complete with actionable strategies, that will help parents move from uncertainty and self-blame to confidence and sturdy leadership.
Offering perspective-shifting parenting principles and troubleshooting for specific scenarios—including sibling rivalry, separation anxiety, tantrums, and more—Good Inside is a comprehensive resource for a generation of parents looking for a new way to raise their kids while still setting them up for a lifetime of self-regulation, confidence, and resilience.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to break the generational pattern of how they were parented. I know my parents did their best, but blimey they were clueless. Dr Becky’s clarity in what everyone’s role is, and how to retain firm boundaries whilst maintaining connection, is what I’ve been looking for.
Some people dismiss this kind of approach, labelling it permissive parenting, allowing children to rule the roost, bringing up spoilt brats, with good old lines like “there’s nothing wrong with how it’s always been done”. In my opinion, they haven’t looked closely enough at what’s being said here.
Sadly, I’m sure this isn’t for everyone - if it was, I think the world would be a much better place. I see so many emotionally dysregulated adults who desperately needed a parent to connect with them and validate their feelings. But if you’re finding parenting difficult (and if you aren’t, I’d love to know how!) and you want things to be better, try this book. It’s absolutely brilliant.
