An evening with psychologist and parenting expert Dr. Becky
Aspen Country Day School is hosting an evening with Dr. Rebecca Kennedy, more famously known as Dr. Becky, a clinical psychologist, parenting expert and author.
The event will take place at the Aspen Country Day campus at 6 p.m. Sept. 21.
“With an enormous social media following, Kennedy has been called the millennial parenting whisperer,” Aspen Country Day School Director of Advancement Carolyn Hines wrote in an email.
Kennedy, mom of three and founder of Good Inside, started out practicing a popular behavior-first, reward-and-punishment model of parent coaching. In 2020, she started Good Inside with friend and colleague Erica Belsky. The goal was to “focus on the parent behind the parenting and the child behind the behavior” in order to help families heal. Good Inside was developed on foundations of sturdy leadership, parent-child connection, deep thoughts and practical strategies, bite-sized learning and community, according to the company.
Many parents came across Kennedy’s advice on Instagram, where she does most of her counseling through videos she films on her iPhone in her apartment.
In addition to her Instagram and website, Kennedy also has a podcast, “Good Inside with Dr. Becky,” in which she answers questions from real parents.
Kennedy’s book, “Good Inside: A Guide to Becoming the Parent You Want to Be,” was released Sept. 13. The book builds on conversations from her online membership community and podcast.
“Aspen Country Day School is always trying to connect parents with resources that can help them in their daily lives. When we heard Dr. Becky Kennedy was going to be on a book tour, we were happy to invite her to speak here on campus,” Hines wrote.
The event is free. RSVP at AspenCountryDay.org/drbecky. Registered attendees will receive a copy of Kennedy’s book at the event.
The Aspen High School football team closed out non-league play on Friday night with a 34-21 loss at Steamboat Springs. All of the Skiers’ points came late with the game well out of reach.
