Strengthen behavior: Behavior modification is based in part on these basic principles: if someone receives what is considered a reward after engaging in certain behavior, that behavior will be strengthened or occur more often. If someone receives no reward, that behavior will weaken or occur less often. It is up to you to decide what behavior get what rewards. So make some lists of what works and see my comment below.
