Examples of Operant Conditioning in Everyday Life?

Answer

Operant conditioning is a type of learning where an individuals behavior is modified because of the consequences of the behavior. The change can modify the form, strength, or the frequency of the behavior. There are many real life examples of operant conditioning, such as a child learning to clean his or her room, because he or she knows they will get time to watch TV after. Another example is a child learning not to hit because he was punished after hitting another child before.
