  • Taking things away such as video games, tv, computer. Keeping him home as in, not going to friends houses or having friends over.

  • Take away whatever is the most important thing to him for an appropriate time. Make sure you do fun things together too so it isn't all negative.

  • Chores, and lots of them!

  • I agree- take things away. Sounds mean but you have to hit em where it hurts- take away whatever he loves the most, video games, computer time with friends. And be consistent.

  • Whatever you decide, consistency is the most important thing. Also be sure to provide plenty of attention for the positive things. With my son it's taking away his computer and gaming time. That's the killer.

  • I take the ipods, video games, and anything that they "have to have".
