comment Questions about “Peaceful Parent, Happy Kids”
@Koveras, this link explains the four types of reinforcement: Positive Reinforcement, Negative Reinforcement, Punishment, and Extinction. Positive Reinforcement: you add something to the situation to increase a behavior. Negative Reinforcement: you take away something to increase a behavior. Punishment: you add something to decrease a behavior. Extinction: you take away something to decrease a behavior.

comment Does teaching your child sign language improve his emotional health?
I didn't know that people used "emotional health" and "mental health" interchangeably. But even if I would have said "mental health" in my question, it would still be what I intended to ask. I want to know if using sign language makes the child happier and maybe decreases his frustration in such a way that he will be a happier and less-prone-to-depression adult. Thank you for your second link though (the balanced one). I will read that before making a decision.
