ABC (Antecedent, Behavior and Consequence) activity to help children understand how consequences are related to their behaviors and how behaviors are connected to a stimulating event or situation.
Antecedent – The situation or event before a behavior occurs.
Behavior – The actual behavior (tantrum, arguing, yelling, running away).
Consequence – What happens as a result of the behavior.
Using the twist in this activity will help your child understand that they can get their desired outcome if it is attached to the appropriate behavior.
