reward and punishment arent right,getting them to answer there own right or wrong helps them understand other opsticals they may face and teach them that simpledeductions of both rights and wrongs create there own rewards

Which Works Best, Reward or Punishment ?
Posted: 7/29/2008 11:36:11 AM
What works best? - consequences.

Lavish praise on good behaviour, and dish out negative consequences for bad behaviour. It doesn't always have to be time outs, a good consequence for making a mess is having to clean it up, if they don't want to take a bath then they aren't ready to go for an outting, removing privileges, fewer treats, less outtings, etc.

Kids love attention, even negative attention. So if you don't praise them when they're being good, in order for them to get the attention they want is to behave badly. Parents think they are punishing their kids for scolding them, when in the child's eyes they might view it as the only way to get mommy or daddy's attention.
