  • Take a "Love and Logic" class... It did wonders for my husband and I when our oldest was a handful.

  • Without more details, I can't help much, but maybe just doing something really special with him, and letting him know he can get more time like that if he behaves more will help.

  • Be consistent. No matter what form of discipline you use you have to be consistent.

  • Give it a year.
    No, really, I'm seriously. My mother and I swore that my nephew was evil, and then he turned 6- now he's like, the sweetest kid in the world (um, most of the time, anyway.)

  • Sounds like you are sparing the rod and spoiling the child.

  • Be consistant. Remove the junk from the diet. No artificial colors or flavors, HFCS, excess sugars. Do you notice behavior worsens after eating certain foods? Limit processed foods as well. Junk in, Junk out.
