We've had similar issues with our now nearly 8 year old daughter. We tried several different things and to no avail. We now have a reward system in place. Each weekday she has a fun hour or two in the evening, in which she can do a different activity. She's homeschooled so she gets her fun thing (baking on wed, painting on thurs, watching a movie with a bowl of popcorn on fri etc) provided she has been well enough behaved (we no longer hope for near perfect behaviour) and got her home school work done well and in good time. It is time intensive, but worth it for us at least as her lying, purposefully breaking things etc have all stopped.

Do you explain why he can't do the things he wants to? Maybe say "No you can't do about you do this instead" when relevant.
