    Thank you for giving my answer this rating....it is so important that we (teachers, parents, etc) give children positive praise and feedback when they earn it----and give them the help they need in weak areas.

    Now, HOW MANY parents do this on a constant basis and yet they wonder why their children are underachievers or nonachievers? Self-fulfilling prophecy in action.

    Definitely! Negative and/or little reinforcement causes children to be underachievers. They feel that if they receive only negative reinforcement, why bother?
