Get into Character

Here are key points to help parents effectively wield positive reinforcement:

  • Select and define the deed. Be clear on what is acceptable or nonacceptable behavior at home. Provide observable, measurable progress by specifying which behavior you want the child to repeat. Refrain from giving abstract directives. Instead of “Behave while eating” say “Sit on your chair, do not play with your utensils, and tidy up your eating area after eating the food.”
