wow...I don't know...maybe its just a rebellion phase. Is he getting adequate sleep exercise etc? That can really effect a young boy. Or is he overwhelmed with school an activities or something major change in the famly. If something like that happened all you can really do is tell him when he's calm that you're there for him and you are willing to talk and listen to him only when he's not going to act violent. Just keep to your guns and not let him have rewards of any kind for acting that way. GL to you.

First of all, stop ASKING him to do anything. TELL him to do it. If he chooses not to follow your directions, then punishment should ensue. He would not be behaving in this manner if you hadn't of allowed it in the past. Now is the time to correct this...he is still young. Age appropriate punishments could include, but are not limited to: no TV time, no video games, no going and playing with friends, even at this age you can ground them. Enforce that all homework and chores be done when he comes home from school and before he can do anything extracurricular. Don't allow this foul behavior in your home. You need to be the parent.
