Good Inside with Dr. Becky

Deeply Feeling Kids Need a Different Approach

Episode Summary

If your child escalates quickly, struggles to calm down, and hates talking about their feelings… there's nothing wrong with them. And there’s nothing wrong with you. Your kid is probably a Deeply Feeling Kid. In this week’s episode, Dr. Becky hears from three parents of DFKs and explains why these kids need a different approach—and what that approach looks like. She shares scripts and strategies to help you show up as a sturdy leader, put up boundaries to stop difficult behavior, and bring out the good inside your child. Dr. Becky also reminds parents that seeking additional support for your DFK is a sign of everything that’s *right* in your family: You’re willing to work through the tricky things, together. <p/> <p/> Join Good Inside Membership: <p/> Follow Dr. Becky on Instagram: <p/> Sign up for our weekly email, Good Insider: <p/> Pre-order Dr. Becky's upcoming book, Good Inside: A Guide to Becoming the Parent You Want to Be: or wherever you order your books.<p/> <p/> Today's episode is brought to you by the following sponsor:<p/> <p/> ByHeart, is the first new infant formula brand in over 15 years to completely re-think, re-write, and reimagine what’s possible.
