Our Centre for Behaviour Analysis is marking World Behaviour Analysis Day with this special event. BF Skinner was not only a scientist, he was a parent and the father of Julie Skinner Vargas. This talk gives examples of what Skinner was like as a father. He interacted with his children as a parent, not as a scientist. The positive principles he advocated show how he behaved as a father.
