  • Maybe its time for him to sit down and talk to someone maybe he has something to say he would like to say to a man and sometimes another person.

  • Give him his space and don't get on him why he is grumpy. It is normal, but he still has to respect you.

    When he is starting to say something that you find disrespectful just say, STOP DON'T GO THERE I understand you are angry, but you must still respect me like I respect you!

  • Teens are like aliens form mars, head spins, speak in different languages (bad words) I felt like I didn't know my own kids sometime. I think this stage of our kids lives is the hardest for us moms.
    Just stay firm to your family values, and keep loving him and you will find.

  • Heh, it's just puberty. Find out whats bugging him, but at the same time, don't let him talk like that to you.
