You have to pick a spot and be consistent. You have to "make" him do it. Set a time limit, explain why. Quite honestly, time-outs don't work for every child. You may have to try a different strategy. Depending on how old he is, losing priveleges may be a good one. Having TV time taken away or a favorite toy has worked for my daughter in the past. (She's 10 now, I started these things when she was 5 maybe.)

What I do is sit my son in a chair in the middle of the kitchen and make him sit there for 2 minutes (one minute per year old) if he gets up I start the time over. But when I sit him there I tell him why he has to be in timeout. If he get's up or leaves the chair i will put him back without saying a thing and start the time over. Then when the time is over I explain why he was in timeout, as him not to do it again, tell him I love him and ask if I can have a hug. Thatworks pretty good for me. The first few times it took a bit to get him to not stand on the chair, but now all I got o say is if you do that you will sit in timeout.
