Very impressed with Runemang and Draculya's responses. We may actually have a couple good parents here! Who woulda thunk it?

If a wife gives a BJ when you do something right instead of scolding you when you screw up, marriages would be a lot happier and florists would do roaring business.

i.e. when enthusiasm is important, use positive feedback.

HOWEVER, when danger is involved and aversion is required, use negative feedback.

HAHAHA! I can't believe they posted that description. I didn`t even mean to leave that in the description. Oh well...I will gladly take credit for the troll.

I suggested the post, and left a comment for the mods about their reluctance to moderate.
I suppose I was right...Or they are trying to make some point.

OH Canada! You don`t suck. Maybe some day you may become nearly as great as America.

WIthout even watching the vid, I can say from parental experience that it depends on the person. It's very independent. My daughter responds very well to about 80/20 rewards/punishment. My son - neither. He responds better to personal pride, taking charge (basically you put him in charge and make it his idea. lol.)

As with everything in life, positive/negative feedback is a BALANCE. Look at Kanye West. All those yes-men telling him how great he is made him believe it and just look at his behavior now.

But you can't always kick a dog either. BALANCE. Shame when you do wrong. Praise when you improve. I`m surprised it took a video THAT LONG to express such a simple, and obvious concept.
