I usually threaten to spank them.

It works 95% of the time. If that doesn't work, I spank them, then put them in their room. They throw a tempter tantrum for about 5 mins. Then they are usually good after that.

      If they're having a particular bad tantrum, I will get down to his level and explain why he's in trouble. He calms down and I offer him a hug, 50% of the time he takes it. I want to cry when he doesn't.

      Finally got a job. Jack in the Box. Not much, but it's something. I'm divorced but in a new, better relationship and he's my new son's father. I'm very happy to have him in my life (my ex is a free loader, currently living out of his car).
