My son will be 16 next month. He thinks he has life all figured out. Last summer he wanted to move in with my brother but I wouldnt allow it. Today he is going on how life would be so much better if he were on his own and he has so many friends on their own. I dont know what to do. We dont have a lot of money so he dont have it easy no cell phone, no computer, no car or license yet, no ipod, heck we dont even have cable right now so I cant take those things away. He feels if he lives with my brother (who does make good money) he will have things that he doesnt have now. I told him all that does is put MY responsibilities onto my brother just because you dont like being with your own parents, thats not on your own. He just smirked and said SO, Im still on my own and not here. Please help what do I do??Answer Question
Tell him he wants that stuff. Go get a job. When he gets a job. Tell him you will not be buying anything extra for him any more. Cloths school supplies make him buy it all. Does your brother want your Son at his house? Raising him?

Have you husband help you in this. Also, he need to get a job doing something to earn his independence. At least to prove himself to you. Seems he hast a lot energy. He could also direct those energyies in his education in looking forward on what he will do with his life. Tough age!
