    "reinforcement" is defined like this. But can you take an actual example?
    (psychology) a stimulus that strengthens or weakens the behavior that produced it

    ex)There are times when culture is not important and other times when it is critically important. Frequently occupational similarities neutralize culture. For instance, when two medical backgrounds can help them to work together smoothly regardless of cultural backgrounds. Also, similarity of social class can diminish the importance of culture. For example, throughout the world, families of one class tend to use positive reinforcement in raising their children and provide them with opportunities to develop skills and a strong sense of self-esteem....

    You did a nice job naming this thread, sweetie. I'm proud that you took the time to use proper capitalizaiton and puncutation, too.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
