Cheats never change. Never.
Not sure getting the kid directly involved is the best idea. I have friends whose parents played the game of tearing down the other parent and bribing the child and it seemed like it only had adverse effects on the childs development. My suggesting for that is to leave the kid out of it as much as possible (Not sure how old he is so understanding at this point might not even be an issue).
