  • 21. How can we increase the amount of exercise?
    Limit TV or game playing and save it until your child has played for a certain amount of time with a peer or doing some sort of gross motor activity.
    Better yet use TV and game playing as a reinforcer. Only given when certain behavior has occurred for example their room is clean.
