my 20 year old son was the light of my life. He was so much fun and I adored everything he did. He was and still is so very funny. However, in the last few years he has become hateful to me. He talks so awfull! I try to come back at him but i just hate that he has so much venom towards me. My husband remains silent. It hurts me that my own husband acts like he doesn't want to rock the boat. When I tell my husband that his silence is reinforcement for my son's attitude towards me..he tells me that I push my son's buttons. Honestly, lately I've tried to avoid being around my son. If he comes into the room i leave for another room. I am terrified of a conflict. Its killing me. I just want to wrap my arms around my little boys neck and tell him how much I love him. My 17 year old daughter tells me that her brother has anger issues and she feels sorry for me. She gives me the strength to keep trying. help.Answer Question

This just irriates me! My mom is my best friend and I would never disrespect her. Your Husband needs to step in. and if he won't tell your son he is an adult, and you are NOT going to hold his hand through life. I know it is going to be hard, VERY hard, but tell him if he can not respect you and your house....there is the door. Remind him he will have to pay for EVERYTHING. There is no reason a child should ever disrespect his mother. I am a firm believer in "tough love".
