how to deal with a smart mouth child

I want some ways to deal with my 6 year old son who has a very smart mouth. He thinks he can do what he wants when he wants. Me and his dad has showed him many times that is not the case. I want non whipping ways. We tried whipping and he laughed at us. So i dont want to go that route anymore. Any ideas would be great.

  • Time out and take stuff away. I must admit I've slapped my smart mouthed 6 year old in the face once or twice. Not good.
