I find time outs effective. It may take repition to get through to your child but, I feel like spanking just shows them that you can reslove an issue with "violence" . When my SO stopped spanking my SS his behaviour became less agressive. I've also found that if I sound angry when I give him a time out it's just like as if I had spanked him (which I've never done, just seen how he responded to Dad doing it). So, I think the key is to try to maintain composure and be firm. And then briefly explain when the time out is over.
Just my experience, HTH!

I tried spanking, no effect. I tried time out, no effect. I tried yelling, no effect. I tried taking toys, no effect.
I thought "my god, i'm really in trouble with this kid."
Then I tried getting down to eye level and telling him in a very serious tone how disappointed I am by his hitting. How sad and hurt I am that he would do such a thing. I tell him that I am surprised that such a good boy would do such a hurtful thing. ..........It worked!!!!! If any of you other moms have difficult kiddos like mine try this out.
