  • I know you are, and it hurts. But he's got to find his own way. All you can do is remind him how much you love him and that he's just hurting himself. Lots of teens go through a phase like that at that age, I did. But hopefully he will grow out of it, especailly since onces he's on his own, he will realize how hard it is in the real world

  • It sucks but he is not going to listen to you now! Everything you taught him growing up is still somewhere inside him, and hopefully he will stop and grow up. If he is in college, this is so very normal! If not, well it's normal too, but maybe you should talk him into going? If he lives with you, set some rules, but don't try to lock him up, it will only cause more problems. I am sure he is a wonderful young man, and soon he will grow out of it, when something big happens to him. Don't sweat it mama, mama didn't raise no fool!!

  • GIVE HIM TIME HE WILL SETTLE DOWN EVENTUALLY, SPECIALLY IF HE WILL BE ON HIS OWN SOON. THE REALITIES OF LIFE WITHOUT MOMY WILL HIT HIM SOON ENOUGH.
