When I get angry or silly sometimes I swear. This could happen at home (in my room) or at school. When I swear, my teacher sends me to the Principal. It can be hard to calm down. At home, when I swear, my parents get angry. When everyone's angry, nothing gets accomplished. Swearing is a behavior I really want to work on because I like to see my parents be happy. I also want to work on it because I am trying to be more mature.
I am going to reduce my swearing by using an ABC analysis (antecedent-behavior-consequence). I also plan to use a shaping procedure; where I will use words that have a simliar topography to the swears I use, but are considered appropriate. For example, instead of saying C-R-A-P, I can say C-R-U-D.
Sometimes when I'm angry I say inappropriate things in my head. These covert behaviors sometimes make things worse. I can change my covert words to be more positive, like "I can do this". I am going to do my best to change this behavior.
