By Greater Good Science Center

UC Berkeley's Greater Good Science Center oversees research and reports on the science of a meaningful life, and offers resources that foster a thriving and compassionate society. The Center provides a vital link between the ivory tower and your kitchen table, classroom or boardroom. It offers members access to well-researched content in the hopes of nurturing happy and resilient people, families, workplaces and communities.

This video, for example, focuses on "perhaps the most important parenting skill in the history of the universe," according to the Center's director, Christine Carter.
