As a parent, do you ever wish someone could just whisper some realistic and trustworthy support in your ear? And not make you feel awful for not having all the answers? Well, that’s what I’m here for.

I'm Dr. Aliza Pressman, developmental psychologist, parent educator, asst. clinical professor, and co-founder of both Mount Sinai Parenting Center and SeedlingsGroup. And I'm a mom... trying to raise two good humans myself, so I'm in this with you!

In each episode, we'll go deep (but brief) with both experts and parents to share the most effective approaches and tools and talk about the important bigger picture of raising good humans. My goal is to make your parenting journey less overwhelming and a lot more joyful!

Please join me every Friday for new episodes of Raising Good Humans.

Informative and encouraging

Each time I listen I learn something new and I feel encouraged as a parent. I feel educated and equipped to be a better parent to grow with my child and noting how to better validate and include my children.

Excellent podcast

Such an informative and interesting podcast. So grateful for being able to access such amazing information ☺️

Relatively good content

I thought the content was informative and beneficial, yet was interrupted with the most ads I’ve heard on any podcast before. And for such a short podcast, it’s not ideal.
