Children Behavioral & Emotional System
Recommended for children, ages 3 to 9.
GOOD PUPPY Tickets are the perfect positive reinforcement. Tickets can be good (green or blue) and given as rewards to promote good behavior, or bad (yellow or red) and given for infractions to curb unwanted behavior. Since research shows that positive consequences are more effective than negative consequences, it is recommended to first put the focus on promoting good behavior. Meaning that, if there is a negative behavior to be curbed, it is the behavior wanted that should be encouraged. If tantrums are a problem, sporadically give the child a green or blue ticket for behaving well in a situation when the child would usually throw a tantrum. This will help the child learn to cope with his or her frustrations in order to be noticed for good behavior.
