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!

Must listen!

I’m a first time mom with a 7 week old and have been binging Raising Good Humans for several weeks now. Dr Eliza’s warm personality, expertise and credibility is a godsend during this beautifully emotional and crazy time entering parenthood. I swear my emotional intelligence increases from listening, and my self doubt is always tempered by her supportive and honest approach. I pick and choose the episodes based on what’s most relevant to me that day, and going on walks with my babe while listening is easily the highlight of my day. Very grateful for you, thank you for sharing your advice, tools, guests and helping this mama feel more confident. MUST LISTEN!
Ps. Found through TSC xoxo

Changed my relationship with my son

I have been searching for so long for resources to help my high energy 5 year old and this podcast helped a ton! Learning methods for helping my son feel heard and understood while still maintaining boundaries has changed our lives. I can see how the methods I’ve learned have helped both of us regulate emotions and have happier, easier days. Thank you! I feel like I cannot express how amazing the change has been.
