B.f Skinner believed that the best way to understand behavior was to look at the causes of an action and its consequences. This approach was known as the operant conditioning. It deals with operants or intentional actions that affect the surrounding environment. He argued that a reinforced behavior is more likely to be repeated while the un reinforced one dies out. Reinforcement is this case includes the positive reinforcement where behavior is rewarded, negative reinforcement and punishment where bad behaviors are punished. This approach cannot work n all children since a punished behavior is only suppressed but may not be forgotten. Punishment may increase aggression in a child. Depending with the child, punishment can cause fear that can generalize to undesirable behaviors like the fear of school. Punishment only tell the child what not to do but not what to do.
