After reading about schedules of reinforcement I knew one of my best friends from high school would be included in my blog post for this chapter. She was, as most high schoolers are, a bit of a slob when it comes to her room. I would spend the night at her house a few nights a week and her room was always a mess. Makeup, clothes, jewelry and cd’s were piled up on the floor. Her idea of a made bed was throwing her blankets flat on her bed and tossing the pillows on top. I knew her mom’s rules about having her room clean by the end of every Sunday just before the start of the week. I also learned after a while to not stay at her house on Saturday nights or come over on Sundays because that meant I had to help her clean. Almost as if on cue, she would rush around the room all day Sunday trying to get everything in order and the floor vacuumed before her mom came in to check. She would always get done with her room on time which meant she got spending money for the next week. The major, and obvious, problem with this system is that her room would be a complete disaster the entire week beforehand. She never really associated the award of money with keeping her room clean.
