    What If Everything You Knew About Disciplining Kids Was Wrong?

    How we deal with the most challenging kids remains rooted in B.F. Skinner’s mid-20th-century philosophy that human behavior is determined by consequences and bad behavior must be punished. (Pavlov figured it out first, with dogs.)

    This has to be one of the most stunning summaries of operant and classical conditioning I have ever read. I was going to say it was totally wrong but the author was right that Pavlov did some work with dogs.
