Skinner's theory of 'operant conditioning' proposes that children's behaviour is reinforced by adult reactions. Positive reinforcement means a reward is given for desired behaviour. Negative reinforcement occurs when a child is made unhappy for actions that displease the adult. For example, when a child's kindness is recognised, this acts as positive reinforcement to be kind.
