At the very least he requires a systematic program of behavior management. See Lynn Clark's book SOS Help for Parents and follow his instructions (see www.sosprograms.com). Also, his mother should arrange an evaluation with a pediatric menatl health clinician. Finally, soap, spanking, etc. are ill advised. Such tactics tend to cause an already angry child to become even more angry.
