first - take a deep breath! Next, you will have to be MOM and lay down the law. Kids are pretty darn smart, but moms are always smarter. Physical discipline does not work for all moms and all kids, but you are Mom and you have to be one step ahead of your kid physiologically - what wears him down? what is he sensitive to? Also, I know this probably sounds far fetched - but BOYS are very susceptible to foods - what is his diet like? My son was a holy terror, still can be at times, but I started eliminatingprocessed foods, red dyes, sodas, etc - NIGHT AND DAY! - as well, read up on ADHD, ODD etc - he may be showing some signs - these disorders start showing up between 6 and 9 years of age... Good Luck and you can always contact me for more input on how I dealt with my son, always great to get ideas from others...
