  • Take away his favorite things such as toys, privliges, TV, games or friends coming over just about nything that will "cost" him something, keep it away for a couple days each time he misbehaves.
    With my kids, they have a daily routine, they have an everyday snack time before going to bed, anything they like, and any time they disobey I take that away, but there's always a warning from me first..."If you don't stop., its straight to bed NO SNACK TIME!.....it always works for me.

  • talk to his pediatrician - maybe a physical is in order. If that rules out anything unusual, he could just be a willful 7-year old. If that's the case, then read "The Willful Child" by Dr. James Dobson - it gave me some good ideas for my son when he was around that age and I felt sure I had completely lost control of him :-). Babysavy9's solution above is great as well. GL and take best of care

  • talk to him. Do you give one child more attention than the other. Are you constantly repremanding him? Just keep a mental talley of what you do with each child. Sorry hope that helps.
