A friend of yours punishes his toddler all the time because he refuses to share with his twin brother.

Using the information you learned in the lecture about reinforcement this week, which reinforcement method would be the most effective to change his son’s behavior instead of punishment?

Use the questions below as a guide to develop your essay answering the question – “Which reinforcer would be the most effective to change a toddler’s behavior?”

  • What is a primary reinforcer and would this type of reinforcer be effective in changing a toddler’s behavior?
  • What is a secondary reinforcer and would this type of reinforcer be effective in changing a toddler’s behavior?
  • What is a token reinforcer and would this type of reinforcer be effective in changing a toddler’s behavior?
  • What is a social reinforcer and would this type of reinforcer be effective in changing a toddler’s behavior?
    The writing assignment should be a minimum of 500 words and include an introduction with an overview of your essay, ending with a thesis statement answering the question “Which reinforcer would be the most effective to change a toddler’s behavior?” in your own words. Be sure to end your essay with a solid conclusion that wraps up and summarizes all of the ideas presented throughout your essay.
