Binah: Alison Gopnik with Dacher Keltner

Child psychologist Alison Gopnik shares her latest book, The Gardener and the Carpenter: What the New Science of Child Development Tells Us About the Relationship between Parents and Children

She shows that although caring for children is profoundly important, it is not a matter of shaping them to turn out a particular way.  She's joined in conversation by Dacher Keltner, Professor of Psychology at UC Berkeley.

David Kwan is the editor and producer of Binah, featuring remarkable artists and thinkers who’ve come to speak at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco as part of their Arts & Ideas program.
