  • take him to a developmental ped or a child psycatrist and get a treatment plan for your family (weather that be therapy, behavior management, meds, a combo ect..)

    Good luck!

  • Never hit him (spank, slap, pop, whatever). Hitting him teaches him it is ok to hit. It isn't effective. Punishment including hitting, time-outs, grounding, taking things away, ect. does not teach good behavior. Kids behavior becomes worse, they lie, they become sneaky, they resent their parents, and people in authority.

    He needs to be parented using not punishment methods. The book How to Talk So Kids Will Listen would be a good start.

  • Take him to the doctor to get properly evaluated and treated.
