I am having a hard time keeping my 9 year old son under control. I was searching around on the web, and I found this discipline plan that I think might work for him. Has anyone else ever used this? (I am not sure what it called, but I will put the link below) http://Lynmccartney.vidgraphpri.click2sell.eu
He is not really "bad" just likes to be the center of attention ALL of the time.
I am a professional counselor and the best online resource is Dr. Hyde's One Week Parenting Miracle. Major universities have done research, it is simple, straight forward, worth your time.
Remember that negative attention will increase negative behavior. The best thing to do for a nine year old boy is to set clear expectations and clear consequences. That sounds simple, but you must follow through.
I really like the timeout principle, but it must be done a certain way. I prefer to ahve parents use the bathroom for the time spot. It is boring and they cannot use the excuse "I have to go to the bathroom to get out" Boring is a great consequence for a child seeking attention. After the time out review what happened and tell him you love him.
Remember that you can always increase time if they do not change their behavior.
Here is that resource.
