zeeshan commented on Positive Reinforcement

Positive reinforcement can certainly affect a child's behaviour in a positive way. However, long term effects need to be considered as well. For example what happens when you stop rewarding the behaviour or how will continuous rewards affect a child's psyche. What would then be the impact on his behaviour once he stops getting rewarded. Is there a possibility of developing a negative attitude and would the child only do something good if he knows he will be rewarded?
