This behavior sounds like excessive anxiety, not misbehavior. Disciplining this behavior would be counterproductive. You need to get to the root of the anxiety. You stated that this anxiety began 4 years ago, when he was 5. Did something occur at the age of 5 that could have caused such anxiety and insecurity? I think that the best thing to do at this point is to discuss this situation with your son's school counselor or an independent mental health professional. Unless you find out why your son is experiencing this anxiety, this behavior will continue. Again, it is important that you only discipline your son for misbehavior, not behavior driven by anxiety as this will negatively affect your relationship.
