Hello, for my second blog post, I am going to talk about the differences between positive and negative reinforcement.
Positive reinforcement, is when a behavior occurs something is given or added. This would be similar to, if a kid cleans their room or does an assignment they are given a piece of candy. The behavior would be the cleaning the room or doing the assignment and the stimulus would be the child being given a piece of candy.
Negative reinforcement is when something is taken away when a behavior is performed. An example of this would be offering a child something to eat, they do not like the food, so they scream and the parents take the food away. The behavior would be screaming, and the stimulus would be taking the food away.
