Abstract
The aims of this research are to investigate the effectiveness of positive reinforcement to improve discipline behavior in a kindergarten student. The discipline behavior is important as a key success of school readiness and future academic success. Children will not be able to adapt to academic tasks and social interactions at school if they have disciplinary problems. This intervention is a single case study (N = 1) applied in a home setting. This method used pre-post design (AB design) and multiple baseline across settings (eating and playing situation). A caregiver implements this intervention in home settings because children spend most of their time with a caregiver while parents are working. This intervention was 18 days and includes a baseline phase, intervention, and evaluation phase. The result proves that positive reinforcement is effective to improve discipline behavior in home settings (eating and playing situation). This research also found that measures to improve discipline in children can be implemented by a caregiver.
