    Revisit - Overstimulated and Touched Out

    This is a repeat of an earlier episode. Parenting small children is a full-body sensory experience. They're loud. They're grabby. They make messes everywhere. Personal space isn't a concept they fully understand yet. And as a parent, it's a lot. Occupational therapist Larissa Geleris joins Dr. Becky to give parents tips and tools for sensory and emotional regulation so they can go back to enjoying parenthood.

    Today’s episode is brought to you by Airbnb: When you travel with kids, you get really good at expecting the unexpected. But Dr. Becky's last family vacation? She didn’t expect it to feel, well, like a vacation. She found an Airbnb with all these really personal touches—games for the kids, fresh coffee for her, and a really comfortable couch that she could sprawl out on and watch Netflix after the kids went to bed. The place reminded her a lot of home, and it made her realize that her place could also make the perfect Airbnb—and so could yours. We’ve put so much work into creating a loving, beautiful home for our families, whether it’s the kid’s playroom, a cozy reading corner, or even our favorite coffeemaker, and those same personal touches could also create the perfect getaway for another family. Plus, it’s an easy way to make some extra income for your next family trip. Your home might be worth more than you think. Find out how much at airbnb.com/host.

    Jessica Biel on Periods and Body Confidence

    Actor and producer Jessica Biel joins Dr. Becky to talk about the link between shame, body confidence, self-trust, and her new book A Kids Book About Periods.

Only children are lonelier. In this conversation, Dr. Becky talks with a one and done mom who is tired of answering the question "Are you going to have another?".

    Emily Oster and the Bad Therapy Conversation

    American kids are struggling. And there's a lot of discussion around the reasons why. Is it smartphones? Is it social media? Is it a hyper-fixation on feelings and therapy? Economist, author, and host of ParentData, Emily Oster, joins Dr. Becky to discuss the latest book making the rounds in parenting circles, Bad Therapy. They delve into what parental authority is and what it isn't, how minimization of risk is not a life strategy for kids or adults, and how we can hold the idea that two things are true - we can be authorities who also come from a same-team approach with our kids.
