Strategies for Improving Behavior

Posted on September 24, 2013 at 8:50 PM

Parents often wonder what they can do to improve their child(ren)'s behaviors at home and school. I have listed some strategies below:

1.  TAKE INVENTORY OF WHAT'S GOING ON WITH YOUR CHILD.

Make a list of your top concerns to become more aware of the behavioral issue you would like to address.

2.  INCREASE STRUCTURE FOR BEHAVIORAL EXPECTATIONS.

Make behavioral expectations CLEAR, SIMPLE, AND PREDICTABLE. Plan ahead and develop routines for handling the trouble spots (after school). Share this game plan with your child.

3. ESTABLISH BEHAVIORAL GOALS.

Start small by focusing on one behavior that can be achieved easily so that your child can feel successful. Build on that success to develop new skills and strengthen them with practice.

4. FOCUS ON "DO'S", NOT "DONT'S"

Focus on positive behaviors - the behaviors that you want - rather than the behaviors that you don't want.

Avoid disciplining minor problems until your child masters new behaviors.

5.  EXTEND GOALS TO THE SCHOOL SETTING.

Share your child's home behavior goals with his/her teacher and ask for feedback.

Discuss using a daily report card to rate your child's progress on one specific behavior goal at a time.

6. USE POSITIVE DISCIPLINE TO MANAGE BEHAVIOR.

After your child has performed a behavior for at least a week, introduce negative consequences (taking away points or privileges) for non-performance.

Do not dwell on single episodes of  noncompliance. Apply negative consequences, then return to promoting the desired behavior.

The model circumstance I truism Gail Dines discourse with, at a talk in Boston, she moved the audience to tears with her description of the problems caused next to porn, and provoked chortling with her intelligent observations near pornographers themselves. Activists in the audience were newly inspired, and men at the end – sundry of whom had on no account viewed pornography as a disturbed before – queued up afterwards to guaranty their support. The display highlighted Dines's tense charisma and the factually that, since the undoing of Andrea Dworkin, she has risen to that most difficult and interesting of free roles: the world's cardinal anti-pornography campaigner.

The last measure I byword Gail Dines converse, at a conference in Boston, she moved the audience to tears with her statement of the problems caused next to porn, and provoked laughter with her spicy observations roughly pornographers themselves. Activists in the audience were newly inspired, and men at the result – multifarious of whom had not viewed smut as a complication in advance of – queued up afterwards to pawn their support. The scene highlighted Dines's tense charisma and the fact that, since the death of Andrea Dworkin, she has risen to that most sensitive and interesting of mr roles: the world's leading anti-pornography campaigner.
