How to Discipline your Son using Positive Reinforcement

7m | Dec 13, 2023

In this episode of the Raising Sons podcast, Dr. Shell discusses a discipline approach focusing on positive reinforcement rather than punishment. She elaborates on how praise and rewards can encourage desirable behavior in children, specifically your sons, increasing the likelihood of similar actions in the future. Examples of positive reinforcement include praising children for good grades or completing chores. Dr. Shell describes her experiences with her youngest son where punishment wasn't working, but rewarding him for improvements in his homework grades led to better outcomes. She emphasizes the need to adapt discipline methods as per the child's responsiveness, as no two children are the same.
