I have an 11 year old son; who doesn't listen or takes forever to do anything or says he forgot (which is always his excuse, but says its not an excuse), doesn't like to pick up after himself or offer to help at family's houses. If you tell him not to do something, he does it? Is something wrong with him or missing (seriously,I'm not being funny)? He is also very sensitive and thinks he's being attacked or that me and his father are being mean.

I tell my kid if she won't do her chores, I won't do mine. If the rules are clear, and chores are required, he needs to do his chores if you are going to do yours.
