This chapter reviews parenting techniques and provides and in depth discussion of the parent’s use of consequences to the child’s behavior. It teaches how to identify problem behaviors and desired behaviors, and provides the use of point systems as a way to improve child behavior. Topics covered include ensuring consequences are logical and suitable; removing a reward or privilege; and making restitution to another person after causing that person to suffer a loss or an injury, particularly by misuse of fire. There is a discussion of a home management (consequence) program, including a rationale for combining positive and problem behaviors in one program. Forms and worksheets from the appendix are used for parents to learn and review the concepts discussed. Potential problems to home practice are addressed.
