Skinner Boxes

In high school back in the 60's I dated the daughter of a psychologist who was a devotee of Skinner. She and her two brothers were raised in air cribs. Like Skinner's daughter they apparently suffered no ill effects, except my attempts at 'behavior modification' on his daughter were unsuccessful -- not that they were all that successful on other high school girls either.
