Ep #193: Using the ABC’s of Behavior to understand your child’s behavior

July 6, 2022

For the next few weeks, we will review the skills taught on

This week we are focusing on the ABC's of Behavior.

The ABC's of Behavior is a tool parents can use to figure out why a behavior is happening and then take the appropriate steps to keep the behavior from happening again or promoting repeat behavior. 

The ABC's of Behavior stands for: 
A-Antecedent. The Antecedent is what was happening before the behavior. 

B-Behavior. It is what happened or the action.

C-Consequence. This is what follows after the behavior. It can be either positive or negative.

When parents can understand why a specific behavior is happening, it is easier to address the root cause in a way that helps a child learn and grow.
