It is not about doing something "to" him. You don't want to beat or abuse your child.

You need to be a team with his teachers. Get a list of consequences that MATTER to him. does he like recess, for example? Then rescind recess privileges when he acts out. Does he like doing extracurricular activities? Then he doesn't get those if he acts up.

THOSE are consequences. It's not about how much you can smack the kid.

If he knows everything that is being taught perhaps he is acting out due to boredom. If he is only acting up in class the teacher should have a behavior system in place and you would back that up at home.

Losing privileges or special toys for a day or two can often be very effective in motivating a child to behave.

The goal in parenting is not to seek to find something to 'do' to them, but to seek to teach them to do the right thing simply because it is the right thing to do. He is not being fair to the other children by being disruptive in class, so you need to find what will motivate him to understand that concept.

Dear i have talked to him,punished him but no changes till to date.He is being okay at home if i talk to him but in school he turns out to be very naughty.not listening to his teachers,not concentrating in class but turns out to know all that's being taught in class...may sound weird (as advised by the teachers).

I don't know what i should be doing to him...

What is he doing? What have you done about it... other than counsel (which I'm assuming just means talking to him?) and hitting him?

Please don't smack your child. You need to have clear rules and consistent consequences like taking things away or time-out, depending on what fits the "crime". You have to do the punishment every time the kid misbehaves in that way. You can't just try it once and decide it doesn't work. Kids will keep pushing their boundaries, and you have to keep showing them exactly where that boundary stops.
