Does anyone have any ideas as to do to reinforce positive behavior? I figured thats why he is always misbehaving because we ONLY give him attention when he's bad and never when he's good. So the thing is I need to figure out what all to do to reinforce good behavior. I give him candy, let him play in the pool, give him juice. (We cant afford juice all the time its mostly just water thats why its a treat) but we tell him if he's good he'll get this stuff and he is just constantly "i want it Im being good" every second constantly and we have explained to him that bugging us like that is Not being good. he'll be saying it 60 times a minute if you get me. You can say your being good all you want it doesn't mean you are. He is a very smart boy he does understand it but sometimes he just gets in these bad moods where he wants what he wants when he wants it and will kill us over it. I have to come up with some other ideas to start off slow. To be honest the reason is because he is 3 and he's lived 2 1/2 of those years at his grandmother's house and over there they have three kids his age, including him and they ignore the kids unless they do something that disturbs them. Its something he is used to and I want to change it. I really need ideas on how to start slowly.
