Quoting Jax in the Tardis:" That won't work. He has very little comprehension. He would be confused after two minutes. I have ... [snip!] ... I have to keep telling why hes in timeout for just four minutes. He only has attachments to this old lady hat and his blanket."


It won't work? Because you've tried anything different?



What you're doing DOESN'T work. You need to start being more open to other suggestions or you can't expect anything to change.



It doesn't matter what he has attachments to. Make him earn them.

Would you be willing to try a behavior chart? There are some you can find online. Good behavior all day is a star, 5-7 stars (either mon - friday or mon - sun) will get a small prize at the end of the week...

We've tried other things.



No attachment=he doesnt care about it. It wouldnt phase him to lose toys.

Again, no one said toys. Take what he cares about.



What you've tried is not working, so it's time to start listening to other people's suggestions.

I took away the tablet today. Im very open to suggestions. I just know 15 minutes is excessive and taking away doesnt bother him.

So if you know taking toys away doesn't work, why did you take a toy? Why not take the hat?



4 minutes isn't working. At all, how can you say 15 minutes is excessive? it's 15 minutes. Not the end of the world.

I didnt take it as punishment I took it so he'd pay attention to the talk I was going to give him before he bit me.

Then you clearly need no help and everything is going well.

We need no help because one timeout calmed him down?

Okay so now you admit that you need help. Because so far all you've seemed to do is shoot down suggestions.
