Publisher's Summary

Wildly popular parenting expert Dr Becky Kennedy shares her groundbreaking approach to raising kids in a way that feels good.

Over the past several years, Dr Becky Kennedy—known to her followers as ‘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 prioritises connecting with our kids over correcting them.

From reward charts to time-outs, many popular parenting approaches are based on shaping behaviour, 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 shares her 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.

Critic Reviews

“Dr. Becky is profoundly changing the way we parent our kids and the way we parent ourselves. Her innovative work shows parents how to challenge inherited beliefs and behaviors and shift the paradigm of how we understand family dynamics. Her work is proof that we can be the parents we want to be–and that we are all good inside." — Gabby Bernstein, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Universe Has Your Back

"Dr. Becky teaches parents that the foundation of child-rearing is building a solid relationship with their child and offering themselves grace along the way. Captivating and timely, Good Inside is a book parents can turn to at every stage of development, from infancy to adulthood, to continue building connection with their kids." — Nedra Tawwab, New York Times bestselling author of Set Boundaries, Find Peace

"At a time when parents are sorely lacking in stamina and resources, Dr. Becky's wise words and deep insights offer a treasure trove of practical strategies and essential support. Good Inside is the book we all need right now, and the book that will continue to guide us for years to come." — Reshma Saujani, Founder of Girls Who Code and author of Pay Up

great insight, be prepared for the tone of reader

this book is awesome for getting insight in how to break generational parenting, and gives great examples for you to understand the concepts. the author is consistent in her methods and teachings. i recommend you stick with listening even though her tone can seem a little harsh, keep at it - its worth it.

Best parenting book just wish there’s one for teens

This is one of the best parenting books I’ve read, but it mainly focus on primary school aged children. Please write another one for teens!

Fabulous book

As a parent of two young children and someone craving some new approaches to parenting this book was just perfect for me. I’ve already implemented some of her suggestions and my approach is changing. I’m very excited about making changes to the way I parent thanks to this book! First found the author on Instagram and I’m pleased she’s written this. Highly recommend.
