That behaviour is inappropriate and the uncle needs a sit down talk to stop this. The uncle is teasing him and its out of control. i would really be firm as your son is changing and its affecting him alot. Your son has to be taught how to get along and be kind, not doing what you are describing. keep them apart if the uncle wont listen. DONT lose your son, stand up for him.

You tried talking to them both? Does his Uncle egg him on? I would tell the uncle to stop. He is learning by example and if the uncle thinks it's funny your son will continue to do it.

I would also try a rewards chart with him. Try to focus on what he does GOOD. If he is behaving well let him know you've noticed.
