Listen to me!!
Aversive Control (Punishment)
Something pleasant is added after a desired action.
You did awesome on your last test! Good job!!
(Thinking) - I want that approval and recognition again, I will repeat what I did that caused that reaction.
"What? Ok. Cool."
(Thinking) - So, I didn't get into trouble the first time and basically got rewarded for not screwing up. Cool.
Something unpleasant is taken away.
"Wow! You guys rock!" (Thinking) - My parents really love and trust me. I better keep doing good things to maintain this trust so I don't lose these privileges.
"I can trust you!
Satisfies a basic human need like hunger or thirst.
"You were so good at the store! Here's a candy bar.
"That's awesome! I never get this kind of candy!" (Thinking) - This reward was pretty immediate, got to remember this for next time we're at Wal-Mart.
"Candy! Candy! Candy! Candy" (Thinking) - Do my hips look bigger to you?!
Something paired with a primary reinforcer that has some kind of value.
"You did your chores! Here's five bucks."
"Yes! I can go buy those new shoes I want!"
(Thinking) - I'm being treated like an adult! I do adult things and get adult rewards.
"Mom? Can I have another $20? All of the kids are going to see a movie and get Chinese."
(Thinking) - Cha-ching!
When unwanted behavior occurs, an unpleasant consequence is added to try to decrease the behavior. (a.k.a. punishment).
"That's it! Wait until your father gets home!
"Ouch!!!! That sucked!!!!
(Thinking) - Ok, they mean business. Stop acting badly.
(Thinking) - I hate you! Don't look at me! Leave me alone! I'm going to take it out on my little brother!
"Ok. Cool! I'm going out."
(Thinking) - Again, I don't screw up and they reward me with more time with my friends. See ya!!
