None of the punishments we do seem to make any impact. We make him write sentences, copy the dictionary, spank, take away tv, toys, games, etc and the point just doesn't get across to him.
The other day, I was at work and my husband called me saying that he was in his room watching cartoons and he smelt something burning so he ran upstairs and he was melting a hotwheels track, a ruler, water bottle cap, and seat cushion! He found one of my husbands lighters somewhere. He knows not to play with them!
He has had problems in school from peeing everywhere but the toilet in the school bathroom, to licking books during class and just acting up.
He lies about everything.
And purposely hurts his 4 year old brother for no reason!!!!
We have tried everything we can think of but the point just doesn't get across. Right now he is writing 1000 sentences "I will not play with Fire" he keeps fooling around instead, getting in more trouble!

My 5yo was having some similar issues, that have gotten a lot better after 3weeks of school. But I did order the book "Skills Training for Children with Behavior Problems" after reading this article http://www.aboutkidshealth.ca/News/Executive-Function-Part-Six-Training-executive-function.aspx?articleID=8177&categoryID=news-type.
