Description Write an answer for the following statements. — There are many experiences I could talk about, here are a few. Positive Reinforcement: I was a child that was timid and scared of everything. It took my Dad, Mom and Papaw months to help me learn how to ride a bike. I was afraid of falling and getting hurt. Up and down the street they would run holding onto the back of the bike, encouraging me the whole time. And when I fell off, I would cry and, not get back on the bike for a few weeks. They were all frustrated and, just gave up trying to help me. One day my Dad came up with a new idea. He and Papaw loaded up my brothers big wheel and my bike and, went to go the school grounds to ride around without having to worry about the street. Just a big open space. And with a little push I was riding. By taking away my fears, I was able to concentrate on the task at hand. When feeling free and not worry about running into the street or running into a tree, my fear was overcome. Through the positive renforcement of allowing me to ride where I was comfortable I was able to learn how to ride a bike without a fight or fear. Negative Reinforcement: I am a nervous person. And my reaction to my nervousness was biting my nails. At first, Mom would get after, saying things like stop bititing your nails. One time she bought fake nails, in hopes I would stop biting. I did not, I bit the fake nails off. Mom bought the nasty nail liquid and every time she caught me bititng my nails, she would paint my nails with that liquid. It only took a few times tasting that stuff and, I stopped biting my nails. Tasting the liquid did make me stop biting my nails as a child. Now as a adult, I continue to bite my nails. Positive Punishement: Children will be children at church. For kids Mass can be very boring, they just don’t understand what is going on and, their attention span does not last for 45 minutes. My Mom would be creative in getting the 4 of us to behave in church. Her last plan was brilliant. If any of us would misbehave, Mom or Dad would take us to the next available Mass. For us this was horrible because, we wanted to go play with our friends. Instead, we had to go back to Mass and, if we didn’t behave at that Mass, we went to another one. We learned quick to behave at Mass. By experiencing this punishement, we learned what was expected of us. And we learned to respect Mass and, those around us. Negative Punishment: Teenagers aare hardest age group to parent. And teenagers will try to lie there way out of everything to get out of trouble. And then they get caught. I lied to my parents about a grade I had recieved on a test and, they found out what the actual grade was. Mom knew I had a big Volleyball tournament coming up, my punishment was, I could not play in the tournament that weekend. My team did well and, everyone who played or sat on the bench were treated to a pizza dinner a week later. I did not get pizza dinner either. By learning that when I told a lie, I miss out on all the good, even if I did not want my parents to know certain things. I told them the truth. Parenting does not come with an instruction booklet. Parents are always learning and are always trying to guide and help their children. Proverbs 13:24 states ” he who withholds his rod hates his son, But he who loves him disciplines him diligently.” — : Many moons ago when I was much younger I use to like to go out with friends. We had a good time. We would go out to the club and dance and have drinks as young twenty-ones do. I remember this one night I drove and I knew that I didn’t need to be driving. But We were in my car and I didn’t want anyone else driving my car. And I was fine(so I thought). We left the club is was a colder night and I was driving to take my cousin home. I got off the highway a little too fast. And my jeep started to do circles on the street and hit a patch of black ice. I did a few circles and my jeep stopped sideways facing backward inches from hitting the median wall. I couldn’t get out of the car. I had to move it. The worst thing was on the other side of the street a block from me were cops and they were helping someone in a wreck. I just cried my eyes out. I ended up getting home safely. But said I would never drink and drive again. Positive reinforcement: Was that I didn’t drink and drive after that. It made me realize that even when you think you “are good” you are not good alcohol has a big effect on your body. I don’t drink and I tell my kids this story in hopes that they will listen and learn from me. Negative Reinforcement: Jail time DUI or worse dead or killing or hurting someone that trusted me. And living with that guilt. (I think it increases the behavior it made me wake up and understand I am not untouchable) Positive Punishment: I will not drink or drive and I won’t let anyone around me do the same. Life is too short I know it was a god that Keep me inches from that wall. ( Increasing my awareness of life changes that I needed to make. to find God and live for my kids) Negative Punishment: I hate to drive at night or downtown. I have to think about how many people are doing what I did that night and not even thinking about it. I pray whenever I get in a car now even more. Driving is not something I like to do at night. I can’t help but quote Jeremiah29:11Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a future and a hope. For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. Inez NIV Holy Bible 2015
