Parents often fail to respond to misbehavior

In the late 1960s, as psychologist B. F. Skinner's behavior-modification theory made the jump from academia into popular culture, the focus in child rearing shifted from molding character to "shaping" behavior.

He loves to call people "stoopy" or "foopid" or "poopid" (especially that one, since it combines two words he knows annoy me). I've created a monster, haven't I? I have started ignoring the behavior, but what should I do when he directs ...
