Sometimes there isn't much you can do. My cousin was like that when we were growing up. He was very respectful in front of people, made it seem like he was a great kid, but when it was just family, he was a total terror. Finally my Aunt pretty much gave up on him, and he ended up in a bad situation, went to court for it, and he almost ended up in jail. That's what finally got him to straighten out. Tough love is sometimes the only thing you can do that helps them. Good luck with yours.

He sounds like a candidate for military school or at least summer boot camp.
You can try the idea of laying military school information on the dining room table but that backfired on us. I went so far as to order an enrollment catalogue from a military school and when it arrived my son was excited about getting to go. Unfortunately we couldn't afford the school. Lucky for us he grew out of some of his bad behavior and we medicated him for ADD which helped tremendously.
