My 8 year old will not follow any directions from me or his mother. We try being calm and nice, yelling, punishment and nothing works. I need some advice.

What are his actual consequences? (Being nice, being calm and yelling are not consequences).

If, as you say, he 'used to' do chores & follow directions, and this is new, perhaps a physician's exam is in order. Otherwise, he's a normal kid who's testing you. Stay consistent, keep imposing consequences.
