Positive reinforcement for dogs, husbands and children.


I’m a big believer in positive reinforcement. “But what if you simply can’t catch him doing something good??” (As one of Jack’s teachers put it…) 

She really did try, bless her young soul…

It does work. Catch them doing something good. Reward or praise them! They like to feel good and to seek out the praise. Rather than hearing NO all the time, or getting hit on the nose with a rolled up newspaper. Like husbands usually get haha. 

me: You were really nice this morning. I liked how polite you were.

Jack: That’s because you fed me and didn’t have me do anything annoying.

See? It’s…working…

Sigh.

At least in this photo I caught him doing something good. 🙂
