Your scolding is stressing him henc ether nightmare. Please remember that aggression breeds aggression. Instead if you remained calm and dealt with him calmly he would learn that from you. Children do as we do. His young mind is traumatised. So now you have to convince him. Change the way you deal with him. Make him understand with love and patience. Use stories to explain good behaviour. He is just five. He has to be guided about the expected behaviour. As a child he will be naughty. He is expressing himself. So explain to him. Keep explaining till it forms into a good habit. Please do read our blogs on the topics of behaviour, role modelling. Also, here's a link of a blog which may be helpful. https://www.parentune.com/parenting-blog/how-to-build-character-traits-in-your-child/505 hope this helps
