my 9 year old is starting to lose his temper alot lately, and when we try to impose a time out or other punishment he starts picking things up and throwing them at me and hitting me and stuff, i am at a loss as what to do with him. we have tried sitting down and telling him why this is inaproriate and what the consiquences are out in the world if he was to do it to another person, but none of this makes a difference. he has become very unruley both around the house and at school, and if he keeps going this way i think that he is going to end up getting himself into huge trouble when he gets a little older. does anybody have any advice on how i can work with him and around this issue??
