Sadly he is being a pretty typical teen, as long as he isn't turning to drugs or alcohol, maybe you need to breathe deep and treat this similar to many of his past phases and this too shall past.

He is going from boy to man status and not going to like all the changes. Often they want all the freedoms and none of the responsibilities. Its up to you to find his currency and use it too your best advantage......good luck.
If not, give him an expiry date...ie once high school is finished your expected to move out on your own or with friends. Even if this isn't your plan, it wont hurt him to have to think about who will pick up after him then.......
