a well balanced discipline strategy uses both positive and negative reinforcement. punish for the fits and reward when he is good. you can do this any number of ways - a merit and demerit system, of flat out punishments like standing in the corner, removal of goods and privileges, spankings - whatever floats your boat, and flip side new privileges, praise, treats, outings etc when he is behaving properly.
you must also be sure your rewards charts are exceedingly easy to get rewards on. like daily or even hourly to begin with. being good for a whole week is inconceivable to a 6 year old and if he can never achieve the reward, it will never be tangible and worth earning.
