(a) "Unproductive work" is work that serves no purpose except to demean the child. Examples include moving rocks or logs from one pile to another or digging a hole and then filling it in. Unproductive work is never an appropriate behavior management tool. (b) "Unproductive work" does not include work that corrects damage that the child's behavior caused. For example, you may require a child who defaces a fence or wall to repaint it. This example includes a logical consequence and is an acceptable behavior management tool.
