  • I don't, but I will one day. Mine is only 3.5 right now.

    I've never been a 15 year old boy but I have been a 15 year old girl...hormones, hormones, hormones.

    I feel for you.

  • yep. Mine just turned 16. He seems to bark at me all the time now. He got mad at me this afternoon cause I didnt want to answer the door to a stranger. Its my house, I dont have to answer the front door if I dont want to, he wouldnt accept that as an answer...I know what your going through

  • Pretty normal at that age. The good news is that they tend to outgrow it around 17-18.

  • I feel pretty lucky that I don't have that. It started at about 13 and I stopped it as soon as I figured out the best way to get to him. We had a couple set backs this year since he's been 15 but I resorted back to my original plan.
    I told him the way he talked to me hurt my feelings and I try very hard not to treat him that way. I told him that I give him more freedom than I ever had and only have 3 rules, Show Respect, Stay Safe, Keep in Touch and 2 chores feed the dogs and put the dishes away, and sometimes to put his clothes away. I told him when he talks to me like that it crushes me and makes me worry we won't have a good relationship when he leaves home for college and I can't bare the though of not having him in my life. Then I cried like a baby, totally worked - of course it is all true. M kid is nearly an angel. Does whatever I ask now, never argues, hugs and kisses me all the time and we talk everyday.

  • Get to their heart, boys really do love their mom's deeply and want only to protect them - especially my boys they are crazy protective. Also it never hurts to really tell your kids how you feel, it lets them see we are human and volunerable and love them enough to be open with them. I'm not saying we don't still have the occassional normal issues, but they are rare. I never pass up a chance to talk about how I feel about them and how interested I am in their lives and how much I love them. I also always apologize if I feel I was in the wrong about something. My house has never been so harmonious.

  • Both of my sons went through a phase like that, starting at about 14 and lasting until about 18.

  • Yes I've seen this happen it's puburty or peer pressure from his friends to do drugs just to be cool.

  • Seems ALL boys and girls go through the angry at the world and espically their parents stage. It will pass, but not untill they are older, pay their own bills 100% and have to support themselves 100%
