About Good Inside

Welcome to Good Inside—the science based and revolutionary, expert-guided subscription membership that takes the guesswork out of parenting, offering in-the-moment, actionable strategies that create short-term wins while helping parents build kids’ confidence & long-term resilience. Good Inside was created to be a parent’s true co-pilot in every single step of their parenting journey – giving them the resources and support they need to feel empowered, sturdier, connected, and hopeful. 

Fellow moms and clinical psychologists Dr. Becky Kennedy and Dr. Erica Belsky launched Good Inside in January 2021 after discovering that millions of parents around the globe were yearning for support along their parenting journey. Every parent seemed to know the parent they wanted to be, but no one knew how to get there. At Good Inside, we are determined to fill this gap. We believe that parenting is the most important, challenging, and ongoing job in the world—and that parents deserve resources and support. 

The Good Inside philosophy is based on the idea that all parents (and kids!) are doing the best they can with the resources they have available at that moment. Dr. Becky shares deep ideas about child development and psychology and translates them into actionable, concrete strategies and scripts that parents can use in their home right away. As we empower parents with more resources—from skills to knowledge to community—they feel better on the inside and do better on the outside. 

With a community of over 2 million parents around the globe, Good Inside is disrupting the parenting space, sharing ways of engaging with kids to deepen the parent-child connection, increase respect, set firmer boundaries, and improve behavior.
