Homework Help: Child Development--I Need Your Help!

Posted by Merisa on Wednesday, November 22, 2006 at 4:01pm.

When attempting to modify a child's behavior using negative reinforcement,
the desired result is that the child

A. Withdraw from certain social

B. repeat behavior for which they
get the desired result

C. avoid behaviors that carry
undesireable consequences

I am thinking (C) is the correct answer,
can you please help?


I think you are right, but read to be sure.

The "desired" result can only be C. If you desired the other two chioces, A would make you a psychological torturer and, B is an answer to positive reinforcement outcome and, is inaplicable.
