Consequences result from our actions.
Positive consequences reinforce and strengthen a behavior, while
negative consequences help reduce or eliminate a behavior. Learning through
experiencing consequences is much more powerful than through a lecture or
punishment. Using consequences for misbehavior is an effective teaching method
for dealing with behavior problems in children and teens.
