I'm not really qualified to give an opinion here, since I don't have kids... but some of my friends who have children seem to have some of the same problems!

One mom I'm friends with has a daughter who is your son's age, and she's having similar struggles. I think 11 is a weird age- too old to play with toys really; but too young to do 'older' stuff... they are inbetween, and they don't like it! My friend's daughter is totally narcissistic, all she thinks about is clothes and her hair, and can be really prissy.

Instead of asking what he would like to do, why not make a list of possible choices- say a list of three activities, and he has to pick one. If he throws a fit, or is horrid to his sister then I agree he should loose some kind of privilege, like not getting to watch his favorite television program or something.
