Carrots and Sticks - The Last Resort

Contribution by Dr. Bakulesh Chauhan

Brief Description

Carrots and sticks are not the best way to motivate people, especially if those people happen to be your family. But sometimes we run out of options. This narrow form of behaviorism - incessantly judging all behaviors as good or bad and then rewarding or punishing the child for those behaviors consistently over and over to train the child - is clearly not healthy for a child's development, unless you want them to grow up as obedient and mindless like your dog.
