Question description

Ten-year-old Billy has started to use foul language in casual conversation just as his mother does. She laughs when Billy uses this language and does not see it as an issue. It is only when Billy gets in trouble and his mother is called to the school that she recognizes there may be a problem.

As Billy’s school teacher, explain and provide examples of how you would help him overcome the use of this foul language through operant conditioning (e.g., you may use positive reinforcement, negative reinforcement, punishment).

Lastly, what advice would you give to Billy’s mom about how she might deal with this problem at home? Be sure to explain the role observational learning plays in this behavior, and what his mother could do differently to help him avoid this behavior.

Your initial post must be a minimum of 200 words and utilize at least one scholarly source
