Thank to all & to Katie I'm going to do that one thing he hate is waking him up to do something.

I have a 15 yr old...I think they are just lazy. I go by the never give in rule. If my son goes to bed and hasn't done his chores(even if it's 10pm) I'll wake him up to get them done. It's all part of making them responsible in the 'real world'.

I don't have a 16 year old, but I would start taking things away that are important/fun to him. Stop letting him do the things he wants to do like movies, dates, parties etc.
