Yes, that's what I mean. Or other consequences such as not having certain play time, or extra chores

Honey...my 6 yr old does the same thing....swatting him on the behind doesn't help. So I act rude back....If he says I hate you...I tell him I hate him back. This shocks him and he comes around. Then we sit and talk about how hurtful things make a person feels bad....yes a 6 yr old understands. Take away toys...games or favorite book he loves. Let him know every time he acts rude this will happen. The one thing that works for me the most is telling him I'm texting teacher. He worships the ground she walks on. She thinks he does no wrong...yea..right.

Well, it's part of being a parent. You have to have endless patience.

You also need to be consistently enforcing consequences EVERY time he pushes your buttons. They need to be the same consequences each time, and they need to be enforced. If he argues, then the next 'step' of consequences is enforced.

He also needs to clearly understand that his actions will have direct consequences, and if he wants GOOD ones, his behaviour and attitude need to be GOOD.

Patience I am running out of consistency is what I am instilling its not helping.
