Calvin and Hobbes cartoon demonstrates appetitive and aversive behaviors. This cartoon, illustrated by Bill Watterson, shows a child becoming belligerent towards a cup of rice soup. This is an example of how many parents fail to notice their efforts to discipline their children. They try to diminish their child's bad behavior. A person might declare that something is unfavorable for them, yet strive hard to secure it. For example, a person who thinks alcohol is gross, but still run to the store to get it every morning has a problem. Calvin and Hobbes illustrate that talk is cheap. "Just verbal behavior" describes is not accurate. As they say, actions speak louder than words.
