I believe that Negative reinforcement is not talked about as much as positive reinforcement so that is why I decided to talk about negative reinforcement in this blog post. Negative reinforcements can be very effective when done properly. It is said that it is most effective when reinforcers are presented immediately following a behavior. An example of negative reinforcement is as a teacher if a student is working very hard all day and is acting good then you take homework away for the night. This gives the children a break and shows them that a good work ethic during the day can be rewarded.
