You don't have to spank him or swat his butt... just keep taking him back to bed. The first time remind him it's bedtime. After that say nothing. My DD gets put to bed, we know she gets up after and plays but it's fine because she goes to bed when she's ready. She does not come out either. You just need to be firm and consistent. Let him know your new bedtime routine, then stick to it. Brush teeth, read book, lights out. It might take a day, a week, a month even, but don't back down or you'll never get it done.

Next question overall
How do you deal with some one who is so impossible?
