When these additional timeout target behaviors occur, parents immediately move to the diamond above Step 12 on the BMFC and send the child directly to timeout without a warning.

In response to limited improvements in such child noncompliance, Danforth (1998a) designed a child behavior management system called the Behavior Management Flow Chart (BMFC).
The impact of the parent training with the BMFC was evaluated in isolation of any other form of treatment, but in applied practice parent training is typically just one component of a treatment package tailored to individual families that might include other interventions such as academic remediation and social skills training.
Parents will understand how the relationship between the characteristics of ADHD and ODD logically leads to the intervention steps presented in the BMFC. When teaching parenting skills in subsequent sessions, constantly refer back to this didactic material.
The key in the lower left-hand box of the BMFC describes the function of each geometric figure.
In addition to the didactic material presented above, there are critical differences between the BMFC parenting steps and well-known parent training programs based on the two-stage Hanf model (c.f., Anastopoulos, Hennis-Rhoads, & Farley, 2006; Barkley, 1987; Eyberg & Boggs, 1989; Forehand & McMahon, 2003).
The BMFC is the unit that provides structure for the synthesis of the literature.
