Good Inside with Dr. Becky

Deep Dive: Gentle Parenting, Race, and Cycle Breaking with Kobe and Kyle Campbell

Episode Summary

How do you raise your children differently than you were raised? For trauma therapist Kobe and her husband Kyle, this question isn't just about breaking cycles. It's about healing generational trauma, too. In this episode, Dr. Becky talks with the couple about their gentle parenting journey—and the important questions they've raised along the way about how this approach applies to their Black children. Their conversation often asks more than it answers, encouraging all of us to reflect on race, cycle breaking, and the generational influence of our parenting choices today.<p/> <p/> (4:00-10:00): The journey to respectful parenting<p/> (10:04-18:39): Obedience as a value<p/> (18:41-21:53): Body autonomy and race<p/> (21:54-25:44): Dealing with pushback from family<p/> (25:45-35:14): Assuming positive intent in kids’ behavior<p/> (40:56-42:51): Being a cycle-breaker<p/> (42:52-43:39): Closing remarks<p/> <p/> This episode is brought to you by Frida ( Get 20% off your first order with code “drbecky”
