Using positive reinforcement to control your children
How to gain control of your children
Positive reinforement is the key to controlling our kids
All parents want their kids to be well behaved little angels that respond to what they say and understand what is best. Unfortunatley this simply wont happen through the course of nature. Children want to be care free and have no rules which is great for them but no parent wants to be on their knee's every 2 seconds cleaning paint or food out of that expensive new carpet.
Establishing the positive reinforcement technique is fare easier the younger the child is establishing the control is easier and your child will begin to take your wisdom and grow responsibly into a successful adult. The simple fact is positive reinforcemtn through a childs life is going to make them understand the fundementals of life such as you must be respectful to get what you want and self control and obedience will get you treats.
The Positive reinforcement technique
This is the most simple technique you will ever learn through parenting and the most positive results are guarenteed. All you need to do is establish a connection with your child and gradually build the understanding that when they do something right they get a treat. Telling them this is fine however any negative attitude towards the deal with the child will break any understand or obideince they will begin to build towards you. The idea is your child wants something you have and they arn't going to get it untill they turn from that little demon into an angel.
Positive reinforcement doesn't suddenly work over night you need to graspe the childs mind into thinking if i do what I am told I will get a treat. The first week or so may be a little unstable, you'll fiind your child demanding treats or most of all once they have their treat they become disobedient. All you need to do is give a little understanding on the issue " if your nasty you wont get anymore treats". Never give into your disiplined parenting, your child will kick, cry and scream waiting for you to give in so don't show them any signs of cracking, the second you give in they are in control and the ladder is then twice as harder to climb to the top.
Positive reinforcement is a technique that originated from the goverment doing testing on rats in mazes back in the 1960's. Further tests were taken into the human sector and they fount that it is easy to control dumb subjects with simple objects.
