I would just like to find out the best route to take for discipline. My son seems to just explode when an item is take away from him because of his behavior. He swings at you ... verbal abuse. This is very hard to control. Please help.

I don't think I could address your son's behavior through email. However, you might look at the chapter in Running on Ritalin on "Addressing the Imbalance" for some clues. Or you could read Phelan's 1,2,3...Magic which is a short concise book on the use of time-outs as a disciplinary tool. Also, Stanley Tureck'S The Difficult Child is a good source of information for these kinds of problems. Good Luck.
