Should I recognize good behavior instead of bad?

Reward Good Behavior

When your child does a good job completing chores, performs exceptionally well on school work, etc., consider providing some type of reward along with verbal praise for a job well done. Some possible rewards: a trip to the mall or movies, having friends over for a sleepover, staying up a hour past bedtime, a trip to the ice cream store, or even a new book or toy, etc. Select the reward based upon the child's age and interest. Providing rewards encourages them to repeat that good behavior.
