There is nothing wrong with your son. You have to make adjustments to deal with the issues without making them battles.
My son is intelligent (gets A's & B's without studying), follows a religious path, and is constantly making stuff, doing art, natural dyes, etc. He has friends, goes to parties, and loves playing Flux with the family. But I can't get him to do stuff around the house either. Here are some of our solutions:
1. He is assigned a certain cup he has to drink out of. This prevents him from pouring a glass of milk, leaving it in the living room, coming back for another glass of juice, leaving that one outside, coming back for water....you get the point.
2. He has to eat at a specific place at the table. It doesn't matter if it is a snack or a meal. This has helped with the issue of him leaving empty chip bags, cracker boxes, plates, you name what else all over the house (refer to the cup issue). Because you know he "was going to clean up all at once ... later!" only he forgot.
3. His participation in the "financial benefits of the household" (i.e. allowance) is dependent on his contribution in terms of certain items that he must do every single day. One missed item = decrease in the amount of "participation" in the available funds after the bills are paid.
4. he has a cell phone and a computer (in the living room where he can be supervised, of course) that are entirely associated with his grades. If his grades are dipping and I don't see him doing his homework, studying, asking for help, etc. the phone gets restricted to where he can only call his parents and his internet connection goes bye bye. That said, if he is asking me for help and we are studying and I know he is having trouble with something, he is absolutely not penalized for a low grade in that subject.
I am not saying we don't still have issues, but making it really clear what is expected and the consequences of him not following through does help a lot. And once in a while he will even see that the trash can is full and take out the garbage without being asked. I hope you can use our ideas and apply them to the specific situations you and your son are struggling with.
