Enthusiastic (and goofy!) Social Reinforcement

Here’s a fun list of silly reinforcing social activities to try with your child. This list goes way beyond a simple “101 ways to praise” type of list, because every child is different and wants different reinforcers at different times. Many aren't as interested in what you say, but in how you say it. Remember that your excitement, smiles, laughter and interest in their success is often what is most important. Rely on engagement with observably effective reinforcers to result in positive motivation. Many of these ideas will work much better after the child has been able to sample them and build some anticipation for you to "do it again." Be sure to look for their reaction and adjust to use the ideas that get a positive response. Vary the exciting actions with quiet, gentle reinforcers, to suit the mood. Don't let these reinforcers go stale. Regularly hold staff meetings to brainstorm creative ideas for reinforcers that will work with your child. When doing so, assign each staff the responsibility to choose an activity off of this list to try and report back on with data. Also assign each staff person to think up an alternative that is not on the list and test that as well. Keep a list of effective reinforcers and rotate them off of the list before the child becomes routinely “bored” with them. They can be brought back several weeks later with renewed enthusiasm. Be sure to use them as reinforcers (the child earns them – after sampling them) rather than only as entertainment (provided noncontingently to gain their interest).

 Basket Airlines! Put the child in a laundry basket and pick them up and fly them around the room as if they are the pilot of a jet plane (with sound effects).
 Squirt Gun Attack! Let the child squirt you with a squirt gun. Be sure to act up like you don't want them to get you. Let them chase you around the room.
 To Infinity and Beyond! The child is Buzz Lightyear. After hesitating to build anticipation, shout, “to infinity and beyond!” and then throw the child over your shoulder onto the bed.
 Paper Spool Surprise! Hide your hand in a large round wrapping paper spool and cover it with a towel. With mock suspense tell the child to look inside. When they lift the towel, push your hand out to "scare" them.
 I’m Gonna Eat Your Toes! Shout, “I’m gonna eat your toes!” Take the child’s foot toward your mouth with pretend chomping sounds. Build anticipation with repetition.
 Scare Me! Say, “do this” and make a roar sound. When the child does, act terrified and fall off your own chair. Try other silly actions.
 Washing Machine Vibrator! When the washing machine is running, go sit on it to feel the vibration. Imitate drone noises to go with it.
 The Big Dipper! Hold the child in your arms in front of you and dip forward, lowering the child to the floor. Let them hold on tight while you unpredictably dip and pull. Pretend to drop them and act scared, like you can’t hold them.
 Whipped Cream Shower! Have the child decide who gets sprayed with the whipped cream.
 Scary Dinosaur Cave! Build a cave with a table and blankets. Sit in the cave to run programs, while Dad stomps around outside like a dinosaur sumo wrestler. The reinforcer is getting to open the blankets and look out at the scary dinosaur.
 Confetti Sneeze! Put confetti in a shallow bowl and "sneeze" into it to blow it everywhere. A bonus reinforcer might be to vacuum up the confetti.
 Get the Maid! Try to pick up toys while bending from the waste. Let the child push you over whenever you try to bend over.
 Whistle Praise! Try to praise with a whistle in your mouth, which forces you to simulate talking with a whistle (or blow-out noisemaker, sound vibrator, guitar amplifier or microphone).
 Magician’s Chain! Make a magician's chain of kerchiefs and stuff them all in your sleeve. Let the child pull them out. When will they end? Possibly tie a reinforcer onto the end of the chain.
 Wind-up Hand! Wind up your hand like it's a toy - use cranking sound effects - then let it go and flap your hand wildly over the table and child's tickle spots in a flip-flop motion.
 Laughter Zone! Bury your head into the child's stomach, burrowing your head in a wiggly way. At the same time laugh and shout, "it's the laughter zone!"
 Let’s Not Go Play! When you tell the child, “let’s go play," surprise them by pulling them back to you by the back of their shirt. Do several times. It usually builds a smile and a lot of times when you don’t grab the shirt the child will back up to you to do so.
 Tell Me What to Do! Model an instruction to do something silly, and then comply with the child's instruction when they say it. For example, give the instruction, "say, 'walk like a duck.'" When the child says so, start crouching on the floor and struggle around while quacking like a duck. Try other silly actions, like falling down or imitating "Barney."
 Train Ticket Tokens! For a child who likes trains, wear a conductor’s cap and punch their ticket as token reinforcement. Print up tickets with a train picture upon them to look like train tickets.
 Wake Up! Fall asleep and snore loudly on the child’s lap. Then wake up suddenly for the school bell — "ding ding ding!"
 Emotional Clown! Act out silly, exaggerated emotions like sad — with a real sappy "boo hoo hoo" and drip water on your face for tears (all very fake) or happy - with a silly happy song and dance.
 Paper Cup Shower! Poke some holes in a paper cup. Then sit Dad in a chair with the empty paper cup balanced on his head. Pour water into it until…
 Keep My Arms Down! Put one of your arms out and when the child pushes it down, make a cranking sound, and raise the opposite one up. When the child tries to hold both down, raise a foot.
 Milk Carton Spray! Punch holes in a milk carton, and pour water into it. Pour water in until the shower starts.
 Where’s My Hand! Say, "give me five" but lose your hand in your sleeve - have child help you find it and then lose the other hand.
 Keep It Up! Cooperate keeping one balloon floating in the air.
 I’m Pouring! Hold a spring water bottle above the child’s head - tilt ever so slightly in anticipatory way —drop droplet. Fair play, however, is allowing them to get you. But they are usually less reserved about the amount they drop!
 Drink from the Squirt Gun! Put juice in a squirt gun to deliver it that way.
 Where’d He Go! Take the child's arms in yours behind your back, then lean over until the child leans on your back. Then pick them up, hanging behind you, and start calling out, “where is (child)?” “(Child’s name)--where aaaarrrreeee you?”
 Lost in the Hood! Wear a hooded sweatshirt with a drawstring and make your head disappear as you tighten the string. Ask the child to help to get you out.
 Crack an Egg! Crack a pretend egg in their hair. Put the fingertips of your hand together and touch them to the top of the child's head. Then gently bop the top of the hand to simulate "cracking the egg." Then slowly drizzle your fingers down their hair.
 Bubble Gum Bubble! Blow a big bubble of bubble gum and pop it with a big pop.
 Hand Grenade! Deliver reinforcers like a hand grenade. Instead of giving an M&M, pretend to send it through the air with a whistling sound until it gets to child’s mouth then explodes (i.e. you make an exploding sound). Run from the child and toss the (soft) reinforcer back to them.
 Reinforcer Presents! Wrap the reinforcer like a real present. Sustain the anticipation by gradually unwrapping across many trials.
 Treasure Hunt! Hide the reinforcer and go on a treasure hunt to find it, giving out the clues for each trial.
 P-U! Smell the child's feet with a dramatic "P-U" and pass out on the floor. Most children will proceed to put their feet in the proximity of your nose. Then wake up and chase after them.
 Break Dance! Put the child on a table or slippery floor for some break dancing. Lay the child’s stomach on the table with their head toward you and feet away. Put your left hand by their feet and your right by their head to generate a pretty good spin.
 Foot Flying! Make the child fly on your feet. Then say, “it’s Barney’s turn” and make Barney fly on feet, then child again.
 Silly Telephone Calls! Make a ringing noise and pick up the telephone and say, "it’s for you, (child)!" Add in silly praise dialog. Alternatively say that you've got to call Mickey Mouse to praise the child's performance.
 Face Machine! Have the child push your nose to make your tongue come out, or pull left ear to move your tongue right and vice versa. Have them push your stomach to make you blow air in their face.
 Barney’s Working! Make Barney, Buzz, or Woody doll do trials.
 Where’d the Tickles Go! Look for the “tickles.” Be surprised, asking, “Where’d they go?" Then find them: "Oh, there they are!”
 Intense Edibles! Try out intensely flavored edibles, like red hots, war heads, pop rocks, breath-mints, or taco sauce.
 Hide Behind the Table! Turn the table on its side with the legs toward you. Hide until the child stands up to find you and then either roar or act scared.
 Stayin’ Alive! Break out your best John Travolta Disco imitation.

 Cardboard Fan! Swing cardboard in front of the child to create wind.
 We’re So Quiet! Sit close to the child and whisper gently next to their ear. Keep it up till they talk back in a whisper. Get a simple conversation going, or just echo each other’s whispers.
 Sock Imitation! Put socks on the child’s hands then say, “do this” and clap or other wacky commands.
 Banana Ears! Say, "Ohhhhh, you want a (food) in your ear?" "Nooooooo." "In your nose?" "Noooo." "On your head?" "Nooooo." "Oh, in your mouth!" In an unpredictable fashion.
 Mr. Froggy! Put the child on your lap and say, “Mr. Froggy’s sitting on a rock, along comes (therapist), and the Froggy goes “kerplop!” Throw the child on couch or beanbag chair. (Or let the child fall through your legs).

REINFORCEMENT IDEAS


1. Give "go play" and pull child back to you by back of shirt. Do several times. It usually builds a smile and a lot of times when you don't grab the shirt the child will back up to you to do so.
2. "I'm gonna eat your toes!" take child's foot toward your mouth with pretend chomp with sounds-- every kid I work with likes this one. Doesn't seem to make a difference in child has rec. language or not--just the anticipation. After first or second time of trying to pull away with laughter, child usually gives you other foot.
3. Say, "do this" and make roar sound. When child does, act terrified and falls off chair. May take a few “do this”s but most kids love the idea of making you react.
4. Instructor head into child stomach, tickly burrowing of head—real laughter zone.
5. Wind up your hand like its a toy until your wrist hurts (almost)—use cranking sound effects-then let it go and flap your hand wildly over the table and child in flip flop motion.
6. Fall asleep and snore loudly on child's lap then wake up suddenly for the school bell--ding ding ding.
7. Do emotions like mad---rrrrrr---sad--real sappy boo hoo hoo and drip water on face for tears (all very fake) happy----with the happy song and dance. Sad has been number one requested for the last three years—I guess I got the drama right.
8. Say give me five or high five but lose your hand in your sleeve—have child help you find then lose other hand, etc.
9. Poland spring water bottle above child's head---tilt ever so slightly in anticipatory way--drop droplet. Most kids dig this big time. Fair play however is allowing them to get you and they are usually less reserved about the amount they drop!
10. Lean over until child leans on your back then pick them up, hanging behind you, "where is (child)?" "(Child's name)--where aaaarrrreeee you?"
11. Wear a hooded sweatshirt with a drawstring and make your head disappear as you tighten string. Ask child to help to get you out.
12. Bubble gum--4 out of 5 dentists recommend chewing sugarless gum between trials.... Just kidding, but a big bubble with a big pop is a big reinforcer for most.
13. Hand grenade deliverance of primary reinforcers. Instead of giving an M&M, pretend to send it through the air with a whistling sound until it gets to child's mouth then explodes (i.e. you make exploding sound)
14. Smell feet w/ dramatic PU and pass out on floor. Most children will proceed to put their feet in he proximity of your nose real soon.
15. Put child on table for some break dancing. Lay child's stomach on table w/head toward you and feet away. Put left hand by feet and right by head to generate a pretty good right moving spin.
16. Make child fly on your feet. Then say, "it's Barney's turn" and make Barney fly on feet, then child again, etc. (bonus--intro to turn taking)
17. Pick up telephone--it's for you, (child)--add in dialog.
18. Say "raise arms" then tickle.
19. Have child push your nose and have your tongue come out--pull left ear, tongue goes right and vice versa
20. Make Barney, Buzz, or Woody doll do trials
21. Look for the "tickles". "Where'd they go? Oh tickles come out. Wait, there they are." Then find the tickle spot
22. Turn table to side with legs toward you hide until child stands up to find you then either roar or act scared
23. Disco
24. "I hope I don't drop you..." with child in arms then pretty low to floor with whew! Thank goodness

Seatbelts on. Check left and right for traffic, beep the horn, etc.

your seatbelt! Hold on to the chair!" Begin to lift chair off ground
slowly. If child is fearful, go slow, but keep pushing with an eye on

61. Also learned from a master - the face pump-up: "Pump me up!" (Mimic two-handed bicycle pump while inflating cheeks). Now you can't talk, but hold his hands and have him POP your mouth. Next time, pretend you have a leak and have him plug it.
62. "Hot hands": his hands on yours, he has to pull them away before you can slap them.
63. Hand game: hand over hand over hand over hand - flat or on a pole, as you would do when choosing 'firsts' with a baseball bat.
64. Crack an egg on his head: no, not a real egg! - One fist on top, hit it with the palm of your other hand, then both hands 'dribble' down his face - yuck!
65. Borrow science tricks: baking soda dropped into vinegar makes a nice fizz!
66. Musical chairs or silly dancing then FREEZE! When the music stops.
67. Borrow magic tricks: pull a candy out of his ear.
68. Electroshock (simulated please!): use your fists as 'shock pads'
anywhere on his body - or have him do it to you and get very silly.
69. "Glomulator": draw buttons on paper, have him press one - it makes you "glom" (make something up!) press another one, you stop, another, you hop. He never knows quite what will happen.
70. Silly noises, may accompany pump-up (above)
71. Blowing or saying silly things into a cup to hear the echo
72. Tickles
73. Kisses
74. Holding his ankles and gently stomping his feet on the floor
75. Raspberries on his palm
76. Singing a line of a favorite song
77. Shaking his chair like an earthquake
78. Anything that makes him anticipate: crawling a "spider" up his arm then quickly tickling him under the chin while making sounds that indicate "I'm coming to get you...."
79. Massage
80. Manipulating his arms and legs so he is "swimming" or doing a "cheer" for himself
81. Turning him chair into a "rocket" which lifts off after a countdown
82. Singing silly songs while you bounce him on your knee
83. Singing songs using his name within the song
84. Having his stuffed animals jump and cheer for him
85. Using a puppet which nibbles on his toes and fingers
86. "Chopping" tomatoes on his back
87. Whispering something silly in his ear
88. Hanging his upside down and pretending he's a broom
89. Imitating lines and characters from his favorite movies or cartoons, i.e. Pumba saying "Hakuna matata" or Donald Duck saying "That was just wonderful"
90. Having his push an imaginary button to turn on a "kissing machine"
91. Playing chase games

Fiica mea are 8 ani si nu este mare amatoare de dulciuri, fructele si sucurile au fost mult mai dorite, deoarece a avut probleme cu dantura in ultimul timp am fost nevoita sa caut cat mai multe recompense si sa le incerc, mi-au fost de folos sfaturile primite de la alti parinti si cele doua liste postate anterior.
Daca sant parinti care au timp si pot posta din experienta lor ar fi util.

Recompense

Postby bi » Tue Jan 24, 2006 11:07 am

Buna,
si eu as fii interesata de altfel de recompense decat cele alimentare.
Aseara am recitit niste cap din cartea aba si am vazut acolo cum un parinte si-a facut o lista cu minim 25 de lucruri ce-i placeau fiicei lui.
A pornit de la mancare, bautura, jucarii, ..
Mi se parea asa greu sa aplic si eu la Emi: dar am incercat chiar in dimineata asta.
Adica, lui ii plac masinile (la inceput le rotea rotile...)acum l-am invatat sa o dam de la unul la altul, si ii place f mult.
Asa ca am luat o masinuta, am pus-o pe masa si de fiecare data cand raspundea bine, masina venea la el (de la mine), si ... a mers; era mult mai fericit ca dupa o buc de caramea.
Apoi am luat un adidas mai vechi de al lui, care il atrage (nu stiu de ce, probabil ca avea o luminta care oricum nu se mai aprinde) si ii dadeam adidasul in mana la fiec raspuns corect. Sa vezi ce il mai apasa, dadea cu mana pe talpa, in loc sa-si mai frce degetele...
Mi s-a parut f interesanta aceasta experienta si sper ca in continuare si eu si ceilalti parinti sa putem descoperi tot felul de trucuri din astea.
Eu am citit aseara de acea tablita in care adaugi se zicem banuti, si la un nr de... ii dai premiul
As vrea si eu sa incerc dar deocamdata mi-e teama sa nu fie prea devreme...
Sper sa fie cuiva de ajutor ce am scris aici... mie daca imi spunea cineva ca pot sa gasesc si alte recompense decat cele alim nu prea l-as fi crezut, as fii zis: nu Emi nu e ca ceilalti, lui nu-i place ....

recompense

Postby bi » Tue Jan 24, 2006 11:51 am

Eu nu stiu f bine engleza, si am incercat sa traduc cate ceva din cele scrise in lista anterioara. Sper sa nu va induc in eroare ...
Cine stie mai mult si are timp poate ne ajuta si pe noi cu gasirea a cat mai multe si variate recompense:
1.Puneti copilul intr-un cos de rufe si invartiti-l prin camera si faceti ca avionul.
2.Ascundeti mana intr-un prosop si pune-l pe copil sa caute sub prosop. Apoi speriati-l cu mana.
3.Pune-l sa faca un zgomot (marait) si dupa ce il face prefa-te speriat, pica pe scaun…
4.Tineti-l de maini, faceti sus si jos cu el , prefaceti-va ca il scapati…
5. Faceti o pestera dintr-o masa acoperita cu un cersaf.. , faceti programul inauntru, in timp ce tatal se plimba pe linga pestera facnd ca un luptator de summo (pe post de dinozaur). Premiul este sa dea cearsaful la o parte si sa sperie luptatorul (dinozaur)
6. Confeti intr-un castron, in care sa suflam, stranutam…
7.Imbraca pe cineva din cap pana in picioare cu diverse lucruri : cersaf,… Premiul : copilul sa le dea jos si sa descopere cine e…
8.Spune-i « Hai la joaca« si trage-l de tricou in spate, copilul se va lasa pe spate
9. Il intrebi : Ce sa fac ?(ce animal sa imit ?) El sa zica ceva de genul : <fa ca o rata> si atunci parintele se lasa in jos, se invarte si macane ca rata
10.Cui ii plac trenurile, ii puneti o sapca de controlor, faceti bilete de tren (cu o poza de tren pe ele), la fiecare raspuns corect copilul iti da un bilet (care va fi folosit ca token)
11.Prefa-te ca dormi, sforai… si te trezesti cand copilul sau altcineva suna din clopotel
12. » lasa-mi mainile jos» Intinde-ti o mana, copilul apasa pe ea, faceti un sunet de ruptura(…) lasati-o in jos si ridicati-o pe cealalta. Daca incearca sa apese pe ambele maini ridicati un picior
13.Gaseste-mi mana : spune-i «bate palma .> si piteste-ti mana in maneca bluzei. Pune-l sa o caute

Bravo bi,
Chiar voiam sa-ti sugerez sa recitesti cartea,sa o conspectezi, ca la un examen, sa mai treci in revista situl, sa-ti faci plan de lectie pt fiecare zi
Daca nu lasi nimic la voia intamplarii eficienta creste
Deja lucrezi mai mult si mai bine de cand ai vazut, nu-i asa?

Pe aceasta cale multumesc tuturor parintilor care m-au ajutat cu materiale, sfaturi si toti aU FOST DE ACORD SA LE DAU MAI DEPARTE.
VA MULTUMESC TUTUROR SI SPER SA NE FIE MAI BINE.
