And it can be especially tricky to get enough fiber into the diets of picky eaters. With one serving of Seed’s PDS-08, your child is getting a third of their recommended daily fiber intake. You can just pour the pre-portioned sachets of naturally sweet powder into yogurt, a smoothie, milk — or whatever works for your family. Everyone wins: you don’t feel as stressed and your child gets all the benefits of a healthy gut — and, to be honest, more regular, easier poops!

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.

It's time to reframe defiance. When our kids don't listen to us or are being "defiant" by doing the complete opposite of what we've asked them to do, it's important to remember that they are still good kids. They are good kids who need firm and loving boundaries, connection, and to feel a little powerful on occasion.

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 Littles get real and deep about feeding small children and everything it can bring up.Join Good Inside Membership: bit.ly/3yV6YgHFollow Dr. Becky on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/drbeckyatgoodinsideSign up for our weekly email, Good Insider: https://www.goodinside.com/newsletterOrder Dr. Becky's book, Good Inside: A Guide to Becoming the Parent You Want to Be, at goodinside.com/book or wherever you order your books.For a full transcript of the episode go to goodinside.com/podcastTo listen to Dr. Becky's TED Talk on repair visit https://www.ted.com/talks/becky_kennedy_the_single_most_important_parenting_strategy

Sorry, but you can control who you’re children hang out with. That’s actually part of being a parent. Your child doesn’t know at the age of nine. Who is that association and who isn’t. This is how teenage girls get pregnant while hanging out with the wrong crowd. This is just ridiculous. The first 30 seconds you saying that you can’t control who your kids hang out with I just stop listening. This kind of crunchy granola gentle parenting is what is problematic in the system now. You cannot let your children do whatever they want. It’s called guidance.

such a great episode! I love the practical strategies. I keep telling everyone "Yes! sharing IS caring, but caring is NOT only sharing! we can care in other ways!" but I really would like to have a child who is compassionate and can play nicely with her / his friends.

I loved this episode. I listened to it once before but decided to listen again given all that's going on and it resonates so well. I lost my grandfather when I was 5. He passed away in his sleep. For years after that I had trouble sleeping because I was worried I'd wake up to see my parents and loved ones are dead. I still am anxious about this! but learnt to live with it. I am glad I'm equipped to discuss this hard topic with my kids when they start asking questions. Thank you once again Dr. Becky.

I hope I haven’t overlooked it but my 1 yo fights her sleep hard. Always has. But it’s starting to take a toll on my husband and I. We never have any us time bc she fights her naps and her bed time. Could you please give me some insight? I don’t know what I’m doing wrong.

What we do with our kids is teach them firearm safety with nerf guns. Keep the finger off the trigger, never point at a person, act as if the gun is alwaysloaded, real guns are for catching food and protecting. Aslo, of course don't touch. Real guns are for killing. We live in the foothills so it may be different for us. idk. I think our kids will fear what we fear.
