My 12 yr old.. (13 in June) has always been the "perfect" kid.. Back in December, we had a few minor attitude problems.. and it has done nothing but get worse.
he has chores that he does - dishes.. every day after school. And on Tuesday - he takes the garbage out to the end of the street. Lately - he has just stopped doing his chores, gives me an attitude. His hygene is HORRIBLE - he isn't showering completly.. His grades have dropped.. from A's to F's.
There hasn't been any major changes in our lives to make this happen. I've tried everything.. from grounding, to actually having to whip his butt..
Tonight i found that he had been burning paper in the bathroom sink.. and throwing half burnt matches in the garbage, and again - did not do any of his chores. We have been over this every single day this week alone.. and this past weekend all we did was arguing because of his attitude
WHAT HAPPENED TO MY KID ???????

Maybe something is going on at school and he is acting out. Have there been any changes at home or with school or church? What about his friends? For this to happen so quickly, I'd say there is something behind it more than just a teenagers apathy. Sit him down and have a talk with him. Ask questions, and if this continues, possibly seek counseling.
