6yo is now at a point where he thinks it's all fun and games to go and do something less than 2 mins after I told him NOT to do it. He's already lost stuff (tv and computer are gone for 2 weeks already). Time outs seem to not work with him. I've tried just talking to him and he agrees that he understands (he's smart, I know he does) but then he just goes and does what he wants anyway.
DH doesn't really seem to care. He told me to bring the issues to him, but then when I do he doesn't bother to do anything so our son thinks it's okay to do what he's doing.
Help! The kid is driving me nuts! What can I do for discipline that will actually work in this situation?
