Get a big piece of white board (or spread sheet) Always start small so there is no chance of failure. Label M-Su, and the behaviors you want to modify. Like the first week, you put do not leave the yard more than X amount of times. The next week do not leave the yard (make it one less) Always, always focus on the positive never negative. Go from there. Only do 2 the first week, add on from there. You don't want to give him too much and set him up for failure. Reward with stickers and tons of praise!!!! Good Luck :)

I have 5 kids, and have dealt with this in all 5, only my youngest has really been the easiest one. What we did was 1-ask the neighbors to put up a fence, and 2-watch them like a hawk the first few weeks, and be relentless with keeping them in the yard. And applying some unpleasant consequence when they are brought back. For my kids, that meant putting them in the house for a while. After about 5 times, they realize it's not such a good idea to wander.

I think the best way to ensure that your child stays in your yard is to supervise him when he's outside.
