Behavioral, medical : & developmental problems need to be assessed for proper diagnosis & treatment. Behaviors persist when reinforced by positive or negative attention. Consistent, immediate, correctly-done "time-outs" effectively extinguish (stop) a behavior after a "testing" period in which the child tries harder to elicit the "old"'parental attention. Medical & psychological evaluations define needed therapies.

To have effective " time-outs," you have to have pleasant, social " time-ins." Play, read, & reward behaviors you do want.
