he can be so lovely. but his listening is atrociious and he just hits out if he doesnt like what someone says to him.

eg this morning i said he couldnt take in big toy to scool coz he lost one last week, he spat at me, and shouted. so i have told him no treat after school

eg on way home from beach, his big brother teased him so he scratched him so hard it drew blood and left giant bruise.

what can we do? how can we help him to make him listen?

its driving our family nuts and husband fast loosing patience.

I'd go for a sticker chart for good listening and kind/gentle behaviour. Make rewards very frequent able to earn treat in 2 days. We've done 10 stickers for tub ice cream then saved stickers to earn things like squirty cream, strawberry sauce, wafers, flakes etc
