Your Cards and Letters

I step out of the sequence because I believe in prompt reinforcement. It is a basic tenet in learning theory. If there is a behavior you like, reinforce quickly. Otherwise too many things happen in between and the kid may decide you have reinforced him for another behavior. We don’t want Johnny thinking he has gotten the sticker for picking his nose in class, for example. (Sorry. Mind works in mysterious ways, but you get my point.)

I want to say how pleased I am with the comments that have come in! I love class participation! Things go better when we share our experiences and help one another.

Many of you may not think you have anything to share. Not true. You are accumulating experiences and knowledge along the way just as I have been doing. The only difference is I have the digital age version of ‘diarrhea of the mouth’ and I don’t know when to stop dribbling these things out! This page is getting sort of ‘I C K!’ Isn’t it? [To Lin: And, no, that does not need to be capitals but autocorrect insisted 7 TIMES that I was trying to write ‘pick’! Does that make sense????? Nooooooo. Lin, I tell you half of the mistakes are not my fault. It is autocorrect. Really.]

Anyway, back on track, if I am actually capable of that…..I love the sharing. I like the idea of the LED lights and the thoughts on transportation and shopping as well as the other helpful comments.

I like the personal reflections on how AMD is affecting lives. I even like the compliments although sometimes I think people lay it on a bit thick! ? (That’s what comes of having friends as subscribers. My ‘ringers’ in the crowd who make me look good!  Thank you!!!! Love you, too, but I am still just your simple, country psychologist. ?)

The other nice thing I like about comments is they are food for thought for me. Those of you who have been living with AMD know there are long stretches of time when pretty much nuthin’ is happening. Sometimes I really have to dig and work this poor little head to come up with ideas. Everyday is not joy or angst. Some days are just plain old dull.

So there you go, keep those cards and letters coming. Love to hear from you!
