Final Answer

Punishment controls behavior by using pain or unpleasantness to stop the child who is doing something wrong. Punishment stops bad behavior for the moment. Punishment does not teach the behavior you want. Punishment does not cause good behavior. Punishment stops the unwanted behavior for a short time. Punishment teaches children to avoid being caught. Their behavior is directed toward avoiding punishment. Natural, social, or logical consequences of the child’s behavior teach children responsibility. When families cooperatively select rewards and penalties for family rules, children develop decision-making skills (See T-2328, Encouraging Self Control for examples of consequences).
