Consider the following scenario:
A mom is trying to increase the amount of peas that her two children eat. She uses a sticker chart to monitor the amount of peas they are consuming and rewards them based on the number of stickers they have at the end of the week. The mom has found that this works for one child, but not the other.
Write a 350- to 700-word paper discussing the following:
- Identify the behavior that the mom is trying to reinforce.
- Identify the method of reinforcement being used.
- Explain possible reasons for this method working for one child and not the other.
- Propose and outline three ideas that may work to increase pea consumption for the children, and include one method that uses negative reinforcement.
