Positive punishment is when unfavourable events or outcomes are given in order to weaken the response that follows. Negative punishment is characterized by when a favourable event or outcome is removed after a undesired behaviour occurs. The goal in both of these cases of punishment is for a behaviour to
Negative thoughts will make an individual more inclined to avoid others. In a study about the effects of positive thinking, the article reads, “When you practice positive thinking, a connection with other people happens more easily, as you are open to them, and not so concerned with your own stuff” (Diaz). In the excerpt of “Dear Miss Breed”, Louise Ogawa is able to gain confidence and stay motivated because of others positivity. The passage states, “If American soldiers can endure hardships so can we!" (Oppenheim).
Positive Thinking and Conflict There are many times in one’s life where a simple positive gesture can make their day. Anne, in “The Diary of a Young Girl” by Anne Frank along with Louise Ogawa in “Dear Miss Breed” by Joanne Oppenheim, display attitudes that not only helped themselves, but gave other people hope. Though some might argue that positivity during a conflicting situation won’t help resolve anything, having a positive outlook on a negative situation can help someone solve their disagreement swiftly and efficiently. The best way someone can respond to conflict is with a positive attitude because it can be a stress reliever, give tremendous benefits to their physical health, and make others around them happier. Having a positive attitude can make people less stressed during a time of conflict.
If your mind is happy, you are happy and if your mind is positive you are positive. To me, it makes sense, because by rather having a positive attitude toward situations, your mind will be in a good place to make good, effective decisions. Another way to stop yourself from sending messages you may regret is by simply blocking all those nasty contacts on your phone. Trust me, it will feel like a gigantic weight has been lifted off of your
Blocking the message is accomplished by condescending the message, questioning the source or even the messenger. The solutions to the issue of message blocking are: to identify the perfect moderate amount of fear to use, to use images instead of just texts since visual imagery is more difficult to block than text alone, and to provide self affirmation or encourage gratitude to the person before providing the negative message. Self-affirmation is a process by which people are asked to reflect good things about themselves. Gratitude interventions persuade people to focus on the good areas in their life that they can feel grateful for. People feel better once they are feeling more grateful or self-affirmed and therefore, they feel less threatened by messages that tell them to change their
While Helen assists Jane in correcting her pessimism and negative attitude, she does not do so in a harmful manner but, instead, encourages Jane, telling her that she is “too impulsive, too vehement” and that there is so much more to the world than meets the eye (99). We can always learn and grow by utilizing advice from others, so why not accept it from those closest to you? Being around Helen makes Jane feel so comfortable and relaxed when she talks, which is indicative of a good friendship and allows Jane to realize that perhaps she needs to be more like her friend. (100). Additionally, the genuine concern Jane feels for her friend when she grows ill is a sign of just how much she has grown from past experiences, and even her time with Helen.
There is a simple answer to this question: it is the right thing to do. Being good can have positive outcomes, whether it makes more people want to be around you, or it improves your life and increases your happiness. Being a bad person will make people not want to be around you, and can have negative outcomes. If you are a truly good person, people will hold more respect for you. You can also view the world differently or better, you would be able to tell the difference better between bad or good people, because you know, from experience, what being good is like.
However, occasionally individuals consider revenge when their actions have no good outcomes, other than to cause suffer on others. These activities can lead to immeasurable extremes. Revenge might come out of hurt, power and anger. Individuals who might have been harmed or betrayed appear to consider without any hesitation that if the opposite party goes through suffer, it will make them feel well and their emotional agony will
Telep (2009) suggested that rewards are better disciplinary methods compared to physical punishments. Physical punishments can be viewed as a positive punishment, that is, when an adverse outcome is presented after an undesirable behaviour. This would more likely be a temporary measure to prevent undesirable behaviour in children. However, rewards are opposite from corporal punishments as they are seen as positive reinforcement which occurs when a pleasant outcome is presented after a desirable behaviour. This is more beneficial when parents want to reinforce preferable behaviour in a child and diminish undesirable behaviour (Telep, 2009).
Even when she does something wrong, I can't help but laugh, I haven't figured it out if it's because of Alysia trying to hold it together to politely correct her, or because I feel like Avary knows very well that what she has done is very wrong. Avary does apologize though, even if you do something she will apologize for you before you realize what you've done is wrong. Don't think this kid is an angel though, there's always a button you can find to set her off, and let me tell you it is hysterical. There was a time when I can't even recall what I did, probably poking fun at her for something, this she does not find amusing. But as I sat on the couch one day, around the corner, barely coming in on two feet is lil' Lundynn, with an exciting Bell Bell chiming from her voice, this is the distraction, along with a cute little smile,which soon turns into an evil little smirk, and than a car toy comes flying and hits me in the face.
