Re: Help with discipline
If your son still acts up and does the same things you tell him not to do, I think it's time to start spanking him. Tell him once not to do something. if he does it again, give him a warning. You say that taking away toys and games does has no effect on his behavior, so it's pretty apparent that he doesn't think what he's doing is wrong and that you aren't getting through to him. When all else fails, I strongly suggest giving him a spanking when he does wrong. Honestly, words mean very little to kids up until they reach the age of 18...and may times, they need to be shown that something is wrong with a firm slap on the behind. If he gets embarrassed about it, then that's fine - sometimes kids learn to stop being little terrors when they get embarrassed.
