i have a son he is almost 4 and is gonna be a big brother soon. He is having problems listening to me and his dad. basically he just flat out refuses to listen to what we say, he even ignores us. We have tried the time out stuff and it worked for a short time, next we took away his toys. Nothing seems to be working for us. He has even started hurting our animals. We are at a loss for what to do. His aggression and misbehavior has got to be stopped but we are hopelessly lost on what to do next... Can someone please help us.

How about trying to praise him on all the good things rather than focusing on the bad behavior.......I tried a behavior chart with my son......for a week I was telling him for all the things that are good he gets a "smiley" face on the "calender" and for the negative things he gets a "sad " face....It worked quite well......His goal was to earn more smiley faces than sad ones....so he could go to a toy store with daddy and get a new toy......I think it worked this way because he saw the "progress" on the paper and was encouraged to do well to get to the goal.
