Caring for School-Age Children

posted by on .

When properly executed, the behavior management strategy known as time-out becomes
A.a positive reinforcer
B.more effective than logical consequences
C.a conversation betwen child and adult
D. suitable punishment for misbehavior

I chose the letter A. Can you check my answer.

    A. is not the answer. Positive reinforcement reinforces good behavior.

    Please check your book to find the answer that your teacher expects. I see two posible right answers.

    Thanks I see two possible answers to. Thank you I am all ready relooking in the book.

    The whole purpose of "time out" was originally intended, as I understand it (although I didn't use this with my own children), to break the "flow" of the unacceptable behavior, to put the child into a quiet place so he/she could "shift gears" and become ready to rejoin the class or playmates or whatever.

    What did you learn from your book?

    This is what I learned from the text book: Sometimes putting children in time-out does not all ways work, so the teacher has to results to other sources which is by talking to the parents.

    Hmmm! That doesn't seem to fit the answers.

    I believe that D is the best answer.

    I agree with Ms. Sue. It's definitely not A or C, and B seems questionable, too, since it does not always work.

    The purpose of time-out is two fold: to remove the child from creating a disturbance, and secondly, to allow withdrawal of attention to the child. It should be short, and no attention paid to the child. One has to be careful with this, some anti-social kids like time out, and autistic kids could care less.

    I ALSO THINK IS D
