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.

Best

This is the best of the best! Science based, but not overkill. With some of the science based podcasts, I find myself getting bored. Dr.Aliza has a soothing voice, she gets straight to the meaningful questions and she really knows her research. While brilliant; also humble. From a lifelong teacher and learner, I have recommended to all of the moms and educators in my life.
