1. Discuss and define the three most important teaching tools for promoting behavior changes. Behaviors can be modified through teaching and exhibiting safe, protective, and preventing practices. The most important teaching tools for promoting behavior changes are. * Feedback. This is a technique for encouraging desired behaviors in children through communication. * Positive reinforcement. Reward give in response to a particular behavior that increases the change of that behavior occurring again. * Diversion. Something that changes the focus of the attention. 2.Discuss and define the ABC's of injury risk to children in relation to accessories, behaviors and conditions. Be specific and Give an example of each one. * Accessories. Accessories that are involved injure included physical and environmental hazards and lack of safety devices. Accessories can help to explain how the injury happened. An accessory is a known factor. A physical hazard could be and object such as broken glass on the floor. * Behavior. Either through action or inaction, behaviors can lead to an injury. Behavior is also the leading cause of injury. Action of a child is the most common behavior in the injury triad. Children may overestimate their ability to perform physical task such as stepping or reaching then here is when the kid can get injure. Example could be when a kid is trying to reach the cookies from the kitchen that he can eat at night. * Condition.
