“Gentle” Parents Still Set Boundaries With Destini Davis
There’s this fear that honoring our kids’ emotions when they throw tantrums or break the rules reinforces “bad” behavior. That if we don’t use punishment… we’re just being permissive. Here’s the truth: There’s nothing “soft” about parenting with empathy. This week, parenting coach Destini Davis joins Dr. Becky for a total reframe of what it really means to be a sturdy leader. The two open up about their own parenting philosophy journeys and how they realized that building connection with our kids goes hand-in-hand with holding firm boundaries. As they answer callers’ live questions about tricky situations with their kids, they debunk outdated ideas on “shaping behavior” and share deep thoughts about what actually leads to change. Their lively conversation will give you practical strategies for setting intentional limits, tolerating your child’s frustration, embodying your authority, and—most importantly—trusting yourself in the process.

@TheOTButterfly on Parenting Neurodivergent Kids
Every child’s brain works differently. A scratchy t-shirt tag or excited squeals at a birthday party might be no big deal for one kid… and cue a *total* meltdown for another. What’s going on for kids who feel extra sensitive to sights, sounds, smells, tastes, or textures? And what can parents do? This week, Dr. Becky talks to Laura Petix—the pediatric occupational therapist behind @TheOTButterfly and mom to a sensory sensitive four-year-old herself—to answer these questions and more. They talk all about parenting neurodivergent kids, whose brains process the world in unique ways, and offer practical strategies to support their needs. Whether you’re familiar with terms like “occupational therapy,” “neurodivergence,” and “sensory processing” or hearing them for the first time, you’ll leave this podcast with a deeper understanding of how sensory systems shape behavior and why it’s so important to believe what our kids perceive. If you’re thinking, “This sounds like my kid,” follow Laura on Instagram at @TheOTButterfly and visit [www.theotbutterfly.com/drbecky](http://www.theotbutterfly.com/drbecky) to learn more.

It's Okay Not To ShareGabby Bernstein Helps Dr. Becky With Her Anxiety
You’re feeling uncomfortable, your chest is tight, your mind starts racing. So many of us recognize this feeling: anxiety. But how many of us really understand it? Or feel capable of managing it? This week, Dr. Becky turns the tables and tries something totally new: She asks her friend Gabby Bernstein, international speaker and best-selling author, to join the podcast to help her with her own anxiety. As they both speak openly about their struggles with anxiety, Dr. Becky and Gabby dig into what our body is really trying to tell us in anxious moments. Then, they walk through transformative, tried-and-true tools for approaching our worries with compassionate curiosity—from simply saying “Hi, anxiety” to doing a tapping exercise. Their conversation is a powerful reminder about the connection between parenting and re-parenting: We must give to ourselves what we want to give to our kids.  For a step-by-step written guide to the tapping exercise in this episode, go to https://bit.ly/gabbybernsteinanxiety.
