Marty is a 17-year-old high school senior who lives on a farm with his parents. He uses one of the family cars each weekend evening to go out with his friends or to go out on dates. His parents have put him in charge of taking care of the cars. Each week, he is supposed to wash the cars, vacuum the insides, and wipe all of the inside surfaces because the cars get quite dusty going up and down the gravel road to their house. Lately, Marty has been failing to carry out his responsibility to clean the cars.
Provide an example of a behavioral contract his parents could use with Marty to get him to care for the cars each week.
Describe how you could use a behavioral contract in your own self-management program. If the use of a behavioral contract is not appropriate for your self-management program, state why not.
