I have a 7 and 5 y/o. My oldest is in first grade and my youngest is in pre-school. The past year the behavior from my 7 year has become out of control. He talks back, hits his younger brother daily, Getting in trouble at school for talking, fooling, and "wrestling" with other kids. He gets numerous notes sent home from his teacher and has even been sent to the principles office. I understand boys will be boys, but this is over the line. I have tried everything I could think of with him. He gets sent to his room, loses privileges, and specific items he enjoys. Nothing works and he laughs at me when I try to punish him. The worst part is my 4 y/o is now following in his footsteps and I'm at my wits end. Any advice on techniques that have worked, please let me know, I don't know where else to turn. Thanks
