This is a repeat of an earlier episode. When your child is being rude it's easy to fall into the trap of yelling, issuing timeouts, or threats. But behavior is not identity and as parents, we have a choice. We can choose to see it as our kids disrespecting us or we can choose to see it as our kids having a hard time and needing us to show them the emotion regulation skills they need.

This week, Dr. Becky chats with a mom struggling with her son's "defiant" behavior and who's looking for a way to re...

Truth: Feeding small children is hard and stressful. But here's another truth: You are a good parent even if your kid is only eating crackers right now. You are a good parent even if your kid hasn't touched a vegetable in months. And you are a good parent if you are bottle feeding instead of breastfeeding. What your child eats or doesn't eat isn't an indication of your parenting. This week Dr. Becky and Megan McNamee of Feeding Lit...
