How do I get my nephew to pay attention when reprimanding him and how do we get him to stop spitting?

My nephew is spitting and pushing kids in kindergarten. When the teacher or his mother reprimand him he makes faces at them and laughs. I am a high school teacher and my sister has asked me for advice. I don’t really know how to stop this type of behavior at such a young age. Does anyone have any info that is legitimate and can help stop this behavior? Please help.

    I’d recommend removing him from the situation as soon as he does it, maybe for 5 minutes. Talk is probably useless at this stag since he finds it funny. If Sis is determined to try, she can talk about it when they’re away from kindergarten about how unpleasant this behavior is.

    Doesn’t sound like the teacher should be teaching if she can’t handle that behavior

    I strongly suggest reading this article:
    http://www.odu.edu/ao/instadv/quest/101s…

    We read it in my child development class last week.
    It’s full of techniques for dealing with misbehavior and they work great on children of all ages. Try these techniques and perhaps check out Kersey’s book. You may have to keep trying different techniques that she suggests to find what works for your nephew.
    Bottom line, firm rules and consequences must be established.
    Make sure that every caregiver is aware of the rules so that everyone is on the same page.

    Good luck and I hope it helps
