"I agree. I just copy and pasted the Professors words from the online assignment. If you think that's bad, you should see how he writes everything else. Lots of added punctuation!!!?? and spellting typoz. And yes, I'm asking YOU. I'm…"

"Both of those would be considered punishment. As Unseen  and Erock68la have both mentioned, punishment is the consequence that is used to decrease the unwanted behavior. An example: A boy is about to take a quiz and his parents want to make…"

"I come from a background where corporeal punishment was the default behavior modification technique during my childhood. Fear and intimidation seems to be a poor motivator IMHO. Standing a disobedient child in the corner to study paint particles is…"

Reg The Fronkey Farmer replied to K_R's discussion 'Punishment as a parenting strategy'
"What type of punishment are you asking about? Do you mean physical punishment as in not “sparing the rod” as many Christians think or are you wanting to include non-physical punishment also? An example being (say) the withholding of a…"

Unseen replied to K_R's discussion 'Punishment as a parenting strategy'
"According to erock68la, "in psychology the definition of punishment is a consequence that DEcreases the frequency of a behavior; reinforcement is when the consequence INcreases the frequency of a behavior." It seems that one can view many…"

Unseen replied to K_R's discussion 'Punishment as a parenting strategy'
"I've been thinking (always dangerous): Can't any punishment always be turned around and viewed as an encouragement.  Using someone else's example, you have a son you want to shower every morning, but he's constantly skipping…"

Scott Graves replied to K_R's discussion 'Punishment as a parenting strategy'
"Depends on what you call "punishment".  My son didn't shower for three days in a row this summer after being told to shower each morning.  He's got a REAL short haircut now.  That was his punishment.  We…"

Belle Rose replied to K_R's discussion 'Punishment as a parenting strategy'
"The "Mom" look can be a smile. I often look him in the eyes, wait until I see the "click" that he knows he's caught red handed and say "what are you doing?" and it's not in an abusive or overpowering way if…"

Unseen replied to K_R's discussion 'Punishment as a parenting strategy'
"It's not just a run-on question, it's a complex question. Did you notice that there are two separate question marks?"

Unseen replied to K_R's discussion 'Punishment as a parenting strategy'
"Paul Goodman, the famed sociologist author (Growing Up Absurd, Parents Day) disbelieved in corporal punishment with one major exception. If a kid who should know better runs out into the street without looking (or does something equally risky), he…"

Unseen replied to K_R's discussion 'Punishment as a parenting strategy'
"At some point, the "mom look" will not work on a rebellious child, so what does "means business" ultimately amount to if not punishment? I might also say that using the "mom look" is negative reinforcement, and is thus…"

"That is a strangely worded run-on question. Yikes. Have you asked two parents yet?"

Erock68la replied to K_R's discussion 'Punishment as a parenting strategy'
"First of all, in psychology the definition of punishment is a consequence that DEcreases the frequency of a behavior; reinforcement is when the consequence INcreases the frequency of a behavior. So I question the wording of the assignment. Using…"

Belle Rose replied to K_R's discussion 'Punishment as a parenting strategy'
""Punishment" is not the way to go (at all.) I believe that setting limits, explaining consequences and following through with those consequences is the best. Now all I have to do is give my son the "mom look" and he knows I mean…"

Unseen replied to K_R's discussion 'Punishment as a parenting strategy'
"This sounds to me like a loaded assignment. In other words, if you were to conclude in any way that punishment might work, you'll get at best a severe slap on the wrist. It seems to be taken as a virtual given nowadays that "there's…"
