Thus far: I've debunked the myth that a consequence must be delivered immediately in order for a child to make the misbehavior-consequence connection, exposed the detrimental nature of high self-esteem, laid bare the falsehood that behavior modification works on human beings and outed Freud for the fraud that he actually was.
