Ground them! I know it sounds old fashioned but I do it all the time. When my children disbehave I take away things and not for 5 minutes. I take it for the week or even the entire month. My children love electronics as do most kids but they will have them taken away for the longest a month if the problem persists. I have even taken away TV from the kids. I do allow them to go outside and play as its always good to let kids be in the fresh air but grounding is what I stand for.
