The Appelstein Philosophy on Child Motivation
The work I am fortunate enough to do is called by various names in clinical and academic circles: behavior modification, intervention for troubled youth, developmental education, and child care. But I see it as truly child helping. I sincerely believe that there is no such thing as a bad kid; just bad luck and bad choices. Kids who act out are sending messages for help and need our attention. Because they want to believe in us, they continually test us to see if we are worthy of their confidence and ensure our actions support our words. When we act consistently and match our behavior with our words, we inspire their respect, admiration, and friendship. And this improvement in our relationship with them manifests in happier, functioning children.
