This is a call to discuss and debate what is positive influence that leads to better human behavior. How does anyone make that decision? We live in a country based on a principle of freedom of choice provided responsibility is part of the equation. I guess my question really is what is the best method to help change a person? Punishment vs reward or something else. I also want to know do you think that people are born bad, learn a behavior or are traumatized to the point the act up in ways that are not in their best interest. Also I want to know if anyone out there has been able to grow up with positive influences and behaviors and how you were able to do it?
