The best strategy for encouraging social competence with a group of school-age children is to
A.reassure the students about positive behavior
B.punish students for antisocial behavior
C.use external rewards
D. model good social skills.

Their are two possible answers but I chose the letter A. as my answer. Can you tell me if I am correct.

    Young children are good imitators, so modeling good social skills would seem to be the best answer.

    I am not sure what is meant by "reassure," but it is also helpful to acknowledge positive behavior when it occurs. This is when phrases like "thank you" or "I appreciate that" come in handy. It will not initiate the behavior, but it can help to have the desired behavior repeated.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking. (I am acknowledging your positive behavior.)

    thank you, it helps a lot

    If 'reassure' were give positive reinforcement, I would argue for A. As it is, I agree modeling is best. For modeling to work, the teacher has to be seen as a positive role model, or heroine.
