Well done! You can have some pocket money.
Beth observes her brother clearing the plates after dinner which causes him to be rewarded by their mother by being given some pocket money. This is various reinforcement.
Beth realises that if she imitates her brother's (who acts as a model for her) actions, the same will happen to her.
Beth imitates her brother's actions of clearing up the plates after dinner and the same vicarious reinforcement happens, as Beth is also given pocket money. In this example meditational processes are demonstrated as Beth pays attention to her brother being praised and retains this information for the next day when she reproduces his actions, with the motivation of getting pocket money as a reward.
