About this deal

Where this method really breaks down for me though is the idea that it works best if there is no reinforcement of the behavior from anyone.

Bedtime has been a big struggle for us for YEARS with our oldest, especially since we brought our baby home in March. Recently while I was making dinner, he came right up to me while I was ignoring him and repeatedly said, "Mommy, I can't draw well, Mommy, I can't draw well," while pulling on my shirt.But then I have to consider that if I want him to validate others’ feelings then he has to see me doing it—even when it’s a whiny, dramatic overreaction and deserves to be ignored. Which meant my children knew instinctively that whining would pull me away from making dinner, looking at my phone, or reading a book. Whether I got mad or came in and loved on them or some other reaction, I was accidentally teaching them that those behaviors were effective for getting me to give them attention. It is rendered useless when the protagonists stop (conventionally) fighting and empty their minds of aggressive thoughts. On Gravity Falls, Ford and Dipper are exploring an alien ship when they accidentally activate its security droids.

This totally reminds me of the Quimby family’s reaction to Ramona when she takes one bite out of all the apples downstairs.I kept my focus on my family, but out of the corner of my eye I could see a blurry mess of dark, matted hair, and sickly, grey skin.

Webcomic Elf Only Inn, being set in a chat room, makes this strategy extremely sensible in reality, but very odd in roleplay.

When it comes to disciplining our children, many of us find ourselves sounding like broken records issuing reprimands that seem to fall on deaf ears. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. We worked with young people for Youth Aspire Connect in Hull to create this animation based on their real life experiences of racism and racial prejudice.
