In brief: Behavior attention
In terms of helping kids with behavioral problems, positive reinforcement is a great way to promote desirable behaviors.
Negative behaviors may be "accidently" reinforced by paying them too much attention, so it's best to ignore most negative, non- violent behaviors. Check out: parenting the kids according to a child psychiatrist- on kindle.
