In "Good Inside" by Becky Kennedy, parents are offered a transformative perspective and practical tools to shift from feelings of frustration and self-blame to empowerment and confident leadership in parenting. Dr. Becky challenges the traditional model of child-rearing, which relies on rewards, punishments, and behavior modification techniques that often fail to address children's complex emotional needs and long-term skill development. Instead, she introduces a profound and simple truth: both parents and children have inherent goodness within them. There are no "bad kids" or "bad parents"; there are only good kids struggling and good parents striving to fulfill their roles effectively.
Dr. Becky advocates for a shift in focus from discipline to connection, emphasizing the importance of secure attachment in helping children navigate challenging times. "Good Inside" serves as both a manifesto and a practical guide, promoting self-development for parents alongside child development. It provides strategies for shifting perspectives and offers troubleshooting advice for specific parenting scenarios, such as sibling rivalry, separation anxiety, tantrums, and more. This book empowers a generation of parents to raise their children in a way that fosters resilience, confidence, and self-regulation, all while recognizing and nurturing the innate goodness in themselves and their kids.
