The Importance of Providing Positive Behavior Support

Boosting positive kids today need to be probably the most difficult, but yet fulfilling tasks in everyday life. Even so, as each parent know, becoming parents is an essential part of the every waking (as well as sleeping) moment every single day in your life. You are looking for them even when they’re with baby sitters plus they seem to be an integral part of every single mood as well as emotion, regardless if you are happy, sad, anxious or mad, they’re there fanning the flames as well as affecting exactly what you need to do. Sadly, many mothers and fathers have grown to be stuck in a rut of negative encouragement and undesirable Positive behaviour and do not understand how to get free from it. They merely know that they aren’t enjoying their kids and therefore are feeling sick and tired of fighting.

The good thing is that you do not really need to fight any longer, for this is how it goes all downhill. As we want positive children that are happy, beneficial along with a joy to get along with, we must be positive parents. That doesn’t mean adoring them for undesirable behaviour, but, whenever we can, disregarding it and not passing it the interest that they’re dreaming about. Instead, they need you to provide them with attention when they’re displaying Positive behaviour support. It’s all too attractive not to include them when they’re peaceful as they can be a golden time and energy to do your own factor, but by hanging out with them during these moments, you’re investing into the rest of their own lives.

Positive behaviour support (PBS) means the employing positive behavioral interventions as well as systems to attain socially crucial behavior transform. PBS may be the integration regarding defined, as well as valued final results; behavioral as well as biomedical science; research-validated procedures; as well as systems plunge to both boost the broad quality that a lot of students are living/learning and lower issue behaviors.

Positive behaviour support strategies was basically utilized approximately Twenty years ago instead of aversive interventions combined with students along with substantial disabilities who involved in extreme types of self-injury as well as aggression. They have recently been utilized effectively with a great deal of students in an array of contexts, as well as extended from an intervention method for individual students for an intervention method for entire schools. Individuals are also benefiting from the skills learned as well as applying them in your own home.

The Positive behaviour support approach will be based upon this science of individual behavior. Crucial messages through behavioral science suggest that a lot of human conduct is learned; comes beneath the power over environmental factors; and could be changed. As problem behaviors are a little more easy to understand, so does one’s capability to teach more socially suitable and practical behavior. The procedure gives credence to important lifestyle outcomes, works from the systems perspective, and provides priority to research-validated procedures.

Positive behavior is a conversation tool. It is utilized to tell another individual precisely what we need. Maladaptive behavior is frequently utilized to communicate any time a person lacks the abilities for asking in flexible ways or even the adaptive manner in which they conveyed was overlooked or not noticed by others. The kid who acts out in the supermarket which is rewarded with a lollipop since it is less awkward than yelling, will probably act out at the supermarket once again in search of one more lollipop. An essential component of the Positive behaviour support program at IKiFit Safe Respectful Learners is the Self-Advocacy as well as Mentoring (SAM) Program that has been created and carried out to permit students to develop the required skills for conversation, self-advocacy, independence, and the capability to access required services as well as support.

Aligning Behavior with Beliefs for Successful, Healthy Transformation

We’re a smart bunch of cookies here! We have SO much health information already in our noggins, and a gazillion times more at our disposal anytime we need it. If our health isn’t where we’d like it to be, it’s certainly not due to a shortage of information or health tips!

The cover of every magazine in the check-out aisle claims to hold the solutions and secrets within regarding weight loss, fitness and wrinkle-free living! Bookstores are lined with nutrition, fitness and health books. Every news report features some new ‘health’ breakthrough or update. Your friends and family have tips and suggestions and things they’ve tried that have worked wonders.

So, why aren’t we as healthy as we’d like? Or, why aren’t we getting those results that the celebrities on the magazine covers are getting?

Quite often, it’s because our Behavior (actions, choices) are not aligned with our Belief System. This makes behavior “modification” next to impossible.

Our beliefs determine our actions, time and time again. Trying to change our behavior without addressing our beliefs is like swimming upstream. For example, if your belief is, “I love sweets!” yet you’re trying to accomplish the behavioral change of “I’ll never have sweets because they’re not healthy!”, you can pretty much kiss that behavioral modification good-bye!

When a belief is strongly embedded in us, we need to choose actions that are in alignment with it in order to achieve success. Otherwise, just leave that behavior alone for now and work on something else that you’re more willing and eager to modify.

The same is not only true when trying to “give something up” that is toxic or deficient, but also when you’re trying to get yourself to add a new positive behavior that you’re not necessarily crazy about.

For example, if your belief (or inner dialogue) is “I hate running!”, yet you’re trying to create the behavior and action of, “I’m going to go for a run 3 times each week”, forget it! You either won’t do it or it won’t last for very long.

To truly change behavior, you need to address your belief system. One of the most successful ways to do this is to consider the pros and cons of your choices… the pleasure and pain… the benefits and cost… however you’d like to say it!

Essentially, to make a wise choice, your beliefs should be based on accurate information. You’ve got to know the consequences of your choices – the REAL consequences of your choices in order to fully develop your beliefs. Not just the consequences you’re willing to look at!

For example, the negative consequences of eating sweets are NOT just a few extra calories, some possible weight gain and maybe a sugar buzz. Once you look closely at the effects of the sugar, the refined flour, and so on, you see that a toxic and deficient choice like this initiates the physiological stress response, which is at the core of every chronic illness we suffer from.

Wow! That’s a tad more significant than worrying how we might look in a bathing suit!

Perhaps if you understood the myriad of physiological and emotional side effects eating sweets (or other toxic and deficient foods) caused, your belief system would evolve and make it much easier for you to choose to reduce or eliminate sweets.

If you focused on how great you felt when you chose to avoid sweets (or have less), or when you chose something like fresh fruit instead, that might be enough to shift your beliefs about eating sweets.

Until you truly understand the cost of your toxic or deficient behavior and the benefits of your pure and sufficient behavior, you won’t really change your belief system for the better. And until you change your belief system to one that supports healthy choices, it’s SO challenging to make those healthy decisions consistently.

It’s not your fault! You just didn’t know that health begins between your ears, with how you think!

My recommendation for successful implementation of this information is actually twofold:

1) Stop trying to give up (toxic and deficient) things that you currently enjoy.

You’re doomed for failure if you continue on this route. You don’t deserve that… you certainly don’t deserve the guilt that comes along with it. Guilt doesn’t serve you at all.

Instead of giving up things that you attach some form of pleasure to, try adding simple (pure and sufficient) things to your day. In the case of the sweets, for example, if your “sweet tooth” time is normally in the mid afternoon, then try having your favorite fruit at that time first. If you still really want the sweet after it… go for it. At least you added more health to that event.

Or, if you want sweets after dinner, go move your body first (or during). Go for a quick walk around the block or do some stretching or go get some fresh air… just add some health. It’s better than parking it on the sofa and inhaling a bag of cookies!

2) Stop trying to make yourself do (pure and sufficient) things that you really don’t enjoy.
Until you change the way you see this behavior and feel more strongly about its benefits, pros, positives and pleasure, you probably won’t stick with it very long… then you’ll just feel bad about that. That’s not fair to you.

Instead, find the ‘good’ things that you actually like, and stick with them.

For example, I see people beat themselves up all the time (figuratively!) about their exercise and diets. They compare themselves to a fit friend or a trainer or a celebrity and say things like, “I can’t do *that* form of exercise!”, whether it’s running, or Pilates, or weight training, or some intense work out or sport. So what! Just find something that YOU like to do, and DO it!

Or they’ll tell me, “But, I love pizza! I can’t give it up!” So, don’t! Eat some fresh veggies with it or a big salad. It’s automatically a healthier meal now. Or, make the pizza yourself using fresh (possibly even organic) ingredients. Why would you ever give up something you’ve attached so much pleasure to?! You wouldn’t!

If you really want to start a new (pure and sufficient) behavior, then familiarize yourself with all the positives you’ll gain from this new action and all the negatives you’ll no longer experience once you begin.

When you’re ready – when your beliefs shift – your behavior will change much more easily.

Align your behavior with your beliefs. If they’re not aligned now, and you really don’t feel like aligning them, then let it go! Focus on something else instead. It’s better than the guilt and loss of self-esteem that results from this type of incongruent thinking.

If you feel like making a change for the better, do your homework. Make sure you clearly understand the cost/benefit analysis of the choices you’re making. Then, get ready for massive success and empowerment!

Nature Deficit Disorder: The Connection between Nature and Behavior Problems

Years ago, we walked a mile to school without batting an eye. Then we walked back home, stopping often at the park to play unattended, unsupervised. After all, it was a park and kids were supposed to play there.

These were assumptions we took so placidly in those safer days before Madeleine McCann and Tori Stafford. The stories of these girls’ terrible abductions remind us that the situation confronting parents and caregivers is totally different in this day and age. Our kids are driven to school in buses and cars. We would think twice about letting them walk home alone, unsupervised. Allowing them to play alone in the park or woods behind the house is unthinkable.

The result is that our children are growing up with less personal contact with the natural world. As Richard Louv says in his book Last Child Out of the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature Deficit Disorder, “Today, kids are aware of the global threats to the environment–but their physical contact, their intimacy with nature, is fading.”

Are We Depriving Our children of a Connection with Nature that is Essential for Positive Growth and Development?

This is the question Louv asks in his book. He makes a strong case for the consequences our children will suffer when deprived of an intimate relationship with the natural world. He makes the case for the growing rise of ADHD, ADD and other behavior problems as a direct consequence of a lack of contact with nature in our children’s lives. Nature Deficit Disorder is showing up as hyperactivity and violence in our society.

He cites studies that show how exposure to natural settings (even for 20 minutes) increases the capacity for attention and focus in children. Students who take a 20 minute walk in the park perform better on tests of memory and attention. Other research studies show that children in public housing who have access to green space perform better emotionally and intellectually than those who do not have such access. Tests also show that just looking at nature can improve test scores.

Investing in Children

Louv insists that time with nature and in nature is an act of investing in our children’s health. It allows them to reconnect with a fundamental part of ourselves that is larger than life and allows them to appreciate the wisdom of cyclical and universal forces.

Take our child hiking as often as we can.

Replace part of our lawn with native plant. Maintain a bird bath.

Have a pebble hunting party in the park or beach.

Build something with the stones and pebbles collected.

Build a tree house or fort in the backyard.

Give our children a pet. It can teach them so much about natural wisdom.

Make a daily Green Hour part of the family tradition.

The Secret To Counter Patronizing Behavior!

Having received patronization, can make you feel extremely frustrated in general. As, this type of behavior indirectly has the secret power to make a person doubt his/her intellect, insight, etc. Anyone can become victim of patronization, and this behavior may take various forms. Calling someone not with their surname, when everyone else are being called by their surnames.

Now, the phenomena of patronization is not confined to the living beings and it includes several technological breakthroughs as well. In a recent study, that has been conducted by the Saatchi & Saatchi, several secrets about patronizing behavior showed that various females felt patronized by the excessive use of pink colored objects, present in the modern market nowadays.

The patronization also damages self esteem and overall confidence level of the affected person. Because of all these adverse effects of patronizing behaviors, the overall performance of an individual also declines. Personality and Social Psychology journal has published a well-recognized study that shows the secret about the female workers who have been experiencing patronizing behavior at the hands of their male supervisors.

One major reason of all these prevailing gender differences relative to the work performance is the mere patronization. The assistant professor from Penn State University, Theresa Vescio also affirms the secret role of this behavior in gender differences. As far as the strategies to counter patronizing behavior, are concerned; they mainly depend on the causes because of which this behavior emerges.

After having discussed the secrets of patronizing behavior and its causes, lets now explore how shall we restrict this from happening. The secret to this problem lies behind the reasons or causes of this particular behavior. The Chief Executive Officer and Director of Sedona Training Associates, Hale Dwoskin clarifies that the prime cause of the patronizing behavior is the self-doubts and insecurities of the aggressor.

This phenomena has been affirmed by the CEO and director of the Sedona Training Associates. And, many people who victimize others, do this unconsciously. So, the secret patronizing phenomena is very normal for them. A simple example of this is the unnecessary praise for women, where males simply believe that they are showing regard. On the other hand females may feel insecure in response. The Sedona Method gives the secret of handling this behavior. The secret of success lies in self sufficiency.

Positive Thinking : A Psychological Behavior

Positive thinking is a psychological behavior that views the good aspects of life. Positive thinking is a psychological trait and level of the subconscious mind, which emphasizes on the entire scenario of life and not the mere good or bad aspects of it.

Positive thinking is a psychological behavior that always assumes excellent outcomes through goal setting. Individuals with a positive subconscious mind think about opportunities, development, improvement and victory. They always assume to receive joy, fun, affection and excellent interactions with other people through the law of attraction. They think of the words of ‘I can’, ‘I am able’ and ‘I will succeed’.

Not all people firmly believe in the power of positive thinking. Some people regard the topic as simply ridiculous, and others criticize at individuals who believe and accept it. Among the individuals who accept it, not all of them have the capability to utilize it properly to achieve excellent outcomes. Nevertheless, it looks like many are becoming influenced by positive thinking, as proven by the many studies, articles and findings about it. This is a topic that is slowly attaining credibility.

It is quite ordinary to hear individuals state: “Think positive!” to other people who feels defeated and demoralized. Most individuals do not take positive thinking seriously, as they do not have the appropriate information as to what it really signifies, or do not consider positive thinking as helpful and efficient. Adversaries and troubles do not depress positive thinking individuals. If circumstances don’t result in their favor or as they assumed, they will do it one more time. Authentic positive thinking does not involve the mere act of stating that all things will be fine, as a word of mouth, and at the same time think about defeat. In order to induce advantageous development and changes into one’s life, positive thinking has to become the dominating psychological behavior throughout a person’s lifetime. It has to become a habit to attain an excellent quality of life.

Authentic and efficient positive thinking means that a person should think about good ideas and good feelings derived from the laws of attraction, and also make good initiatives as a part of goal setting. How can a person enhance this positive state of subconscious mind? A person can attain this by reading excellent and motivational books and articles, and through self-belief and proper actions. A positive mentality results to joy and victory and can alter a person’s entire life. If a person views at the positive aspect of his life, then his entire life is covered with positive thoughts. Positive thinking has an impact not only the person and the manner in which he views at the world, but also the entire setting where he lives and the individuals that surround him. If the subconscious is so powerful in a positive way, then others will likely be influenced to adapt the same mentality through the law of attraction.

Positive thinking brings along with it peace of mind, triumphs, enhanced communications with other people joy and gratification. It also aids in the everyday aspects of life to transpire a lot easier, and transforms life to become excellent and full of promises and potentials Positive thinking can also motivate others to succeed. Individuals surrounding a person choose the status of their subconscious minds and are influenced accordingly. Once a person thinks about joy, victory and happiness in life through goal setting, then there is a great chance that the individuals surrounding that person will be pleased and will also want to achieve positive thinking, since they like the effects that a positive subconscious mind generates.

In order to make positive thinking generate excellent results, a person has to possess a positive outlook regarding life, always assume a victorious result of anything that he does, but also make any important goal setting initiatives to guarantee the victory. Efficient positive thinking that generates outcomes is much more than simply blurting out a few encouraging sentences, or reminding oneself that all things will be okay. Positive thinking and the law of attraction has to be a person’s overall psychological behavior. It is not sufficient to think positively for one time, and then allow defeatism and lack of self-confidence to penetrate the subconscious mind in another situation. Goal setting and other initiatives are important.

Chaos Magick – Random Behavior of Life Itself

“Chaos” is the term used to define the perceived random behavior of life itself. Chaos gives life to reality as we see it. Although the traditional Greek meaning of the word “Chaos” means the first state of the Universe, the popular interpretation these days is disorder or randomness.

If a system of Magick has an established path, a holy book or a list of rules, then it ceases to be part of Chaos Magick. Order immediately negates chaotic conditions. As a result of this, Chaos magick is very difficult to define. Some connect the initial chaos of the Universe (big bang theory, exploding matter, planets forming, etc) with the theory of Creation itself. So the word Chaos has come to mean he process that created the world itself.

Many of the things we see around us behave in a predicted, similar manner; tornado funnels, dust storms and water going down the drain are examples of such behavior. These may be thought of as completely different entities or processes and yet, they behave in a manner and seem to be following the same old rules.

Chaos Magick is the practice of life experiences based on Chaos theory. Meta-belief is a term used to define the concept that our belief shapes our own reality. Our belief is a tool we usually use to change the course and direction of our life. Our beliefs are different from culture to culture, day to day. As we age, our beliefs change.

So who can say which belief is better than another? Many of our beliefs may coincide or cause conflict, in our minds as well as the mind of others around us. Yet, our reality seems to be destined to be the same. What we believe happens. This, in essence, defines Chaos Magick.

Chaos magick does not have any rules. Rules that are evidently important in other Magickal ways of life are not followed in Chaos magick. So people can experiment being good or evil as they like. The whole idea is that people may live and die and yet, in a short time, the world will return to the state that it was in before these changes. Also, there are no definitions for good or evil experiences!

So why has Chaos magick suddenly become so important? Since the 1970s, people have been experimenting with this idea that our belief is not as important as how we use that belief. If one person believes that God is the all powerful entity that controls the world and behaves in that particular way, they may reach the same goal as another person who believes in her own will power and strives to attain the same prize. So it is not the belief that takes you to the goal, rather, it’s the process.
