Yes. Temper tantrums are usually caused by a child's frustrations and is strictly emotional. B. is the best answer.

By the way, beware of any answer that says "always" or "never." When you're working with people, there are almost no situations that are that black and white as to say "always" or "never."


I asked this question today-and you told me to check my text- I did-and
I agree there are instances where you canot ignore the temper tantrums-(such as when hurting another child), so would the best answer be: (B) is an emotional behavior and does not need reinforcement?

Temper tantrums:

A. is a learned behavior and responds
to reinforcement.

B. is an emotional behavior and
does not respond to reinforcement.

C. should never be ignored.

D. should always be ignored.


Thanks for your help!

Let me point out a small problem here with your wording. Note that the answer in B says, "is an emotional behavior and does not RESPOND to reinforcement, while your take on B is not the same thing. Your comment was and does not NEED reinforcement, Does not need and does not respond are not the same statement.

Isn't the best answer to this question
(B)? is an emotional behavior and does not respond to reinforcement

What about (C) should not be ignored?
Which would be the best answer B or C?

Yes.


I believe Ms. Sue and DrBob have both indicated that B is the best answer for this question.

And please, would you put your own name in the "First Name" blank -- not someone else's? That can become very confusing.

Thanks!! =)

The original question states (C) a tantrum should NEVER be ignored. As I said before, never and always do not describe ways of working with people.

DrBob and I both have stated that B is the best answer.
