    Get a sticker chart for good behaviour he is rewarded

    Check out super nanny website for ideas.

    Also time out method will work when implemented properly by both parents. It's important that both parents are on the same page!

    Your doing a good job just need a little help

    Both my 7yo and 10yo are like this at the moment - DH is home from work and I find this contributes to the behaviour. Also late nights from Christmas and New Year, plus the excitement of Christmas etc. In the past it has settled after the new year, never goes away but certainly more manageable and I'm hoping this year will be the same. Otherwise it's boot camp for both of them!

    My DS, almost 6, has had some talking back phases the last few months and refusing to do things, I think this is a normal stage for this age, within reason of course.
    Since being on holidays my ds is definitely worse, but this is because our routine has gone out the window.
    When we get back to our regular eating/sleeping pattern, as well as our chore chart and behaviour chart it gets better.
    We're still using time out, we use it more as a it's time to take a minute to chill out and try to think about what you've done, as opposed to sit there because your in trouble.
    We also confiscate things- iPad ect
    I think it's important to be consistent, sometimes I don't agree with something DH has said, I never say anything in front of either child, I wait till they're fast asleep to discuss/argue/chat about it.

    Thanks for the responses. I'm glad I'm not the only one struggling with this! It's reassuring. Today he missed out on two little outings because of behaviour so I'm hoping that will leave a memory for when we're going out on bigger trips that I really don't want him to miss!
    I'll keep doing what I'm doing and hope it improves when school starts!

    I just thought I should add when ds's behaviour is not at its best, and I feel like I'm constantly telling him off, I try to actively catch him doing something good to praise/reinforce the 'good' behaviour.

    I find focusing too much/for too long, leads to more of the negatives.

    This sounds a lot like my 4 year old :/
    Something I've been trying to focus on with her is to let the little things slide, and try being silly more. So, "oh silly me, yes I dropped that there *put it on my head* wait, I've dropped it AGAIN, where'd it go? Etc. responding to her challenging behavior with humor is working way better than responding by trying to correct her behaviour. She's far more willing to listen if she feels like I'm on her side. It's tough though; not what I'm in the habit of doing.
