Hello and welcome to e health forum.

Your son, at his young age, is acting out and trying to seek more attention.

Do not get disheartened. Try to talk to him, and tell him that such tricks are not gonna get additional sympathy for him.

Just do as much as you can, as much as you would do, if he was your biological son, and try to gain his respect without coercion.

Most probably, he will come around over time.
