How to discipline child without being harsh

Question ID: 33687

Assalamualaykum. Plz help with some advice. I have a 10 yr old son….who I need help with.It seem that whatever I say, he opposes and wants to do the opposite.I don’t feel I’m being too hard on him, I do let him have he’s way at times but things are getting worse.We have taken the television out of our house Alhumdullilah, but there’s so much influence with him just playing Playstation games (age appropriate), at school, madressa and with family members children.Plz advice as to how to control it in a loving way and without being too firm and harsh.

Befriend him. Take him with you for Salaat. Talk to him.
Reward him when does good.
Praise him when he says and does good things.
Do not adopt a dictatorship attitude on him.
Make Duaa for him.
