In my opinion all you can do is love back and stand firm on your decisions, my 11 year old is very mouthy. I keep telling her it is not acceptable and take things away (as I believe there should be some kind of consequence to your actions). Be consistant and don't back down no matter what, it will improve as time goes by. Its hard to be the mom and the dad, the best I can tell you is don't ever give up.

my daughter is the same, I jsut take her with a grain of salt .  She is almost 13, mouthy, knows it all too.  take things away from him that mean alot, phone, games etc until he can respect you, not that it will work but it's a start.
