Positive Punishment

Positive Punishment is used to decrease certain events from happening again. When a person or animal acts in a way that is not acceptable the parent, owner or boss may reprimand them in a way that they don't like. For example a employee talks back to his boss so his boss screams at him and threatens him, the employee does not like getting yelled at so he probably wont talk back to his boss again because he is scared to get yelled at again and fears for his job. When using positive punishment you make the person you are punishing do something that they do not like and they will likely not do it again.
