How do I discpline my five year old son for back talk and beating up his littlebrother?

Um, in my house the back talk means sentences and the beating up the younger sibling gets your butt busted big time. At the age of five it may be a jealousy issue that he feels you like the baby more than him and this is his way of expressing it ... I would recommend trying to talk to him to find out why he's doing it and letting him know that it's ok to be upset but it's not ok to hurt someone b/c we are. If that doesn't work bust his butt ... or sit him in time out ... though in my house time out means either sentences or physical activity (push ups, sit ups, jumping jacks, stretches and such ... similar to a boot camp style discipline). Hope this helps.
