JMO, but I think he probably needs a little more love and attention, not more discipline. Sure, stick to your rules, but he is acting out for a reason and slapping him or putting him in a corner isn't going to solve the problem. I think you need to keep doing your time outs and stuff, but maybe try taking him aside and talk to him about what he has done and why. Realize that he might not even know why he is acting out like he is. Give him some understanding and make him feel good that he has an advocate in you.
