I'd be afraid of damaging his ear. Ears are sensitive. I know you are trying to make him mind, but damn that hurts.Can't you pull a piece of his hair maybe by his ear.

My dad smacked my sister in the ear ONCE. Now her ears are super sensitive. If you just touch her ear it brings tears to her eyes. That's just one smack, how many pulls would it take to get your sons like that. He could get cauliflower ears. Those are big fat bumpy ears that have cartilage damage. You see HS boys with them that wrestled without head gear on, back in the day from being put in head locks and stuff. Find a different way.
