Does anyone else here have a teen son.....

that adores them??

I have always heard that once he hits the teens he will hate you. Well, he is 18 and has never said anything like that to me. In fact, he considers me his best friend.

  • I am not my 15 yr old sons best friend, and don't want to be, but we do share a bond that a lot of Moms I know don't share with their teen son. His biodads family hasn't had anything to do with him, including his biodad, by their choice, and I have been there for him, and always will be.

    We don't have the hateful, bad teen problems, thankfully, and I think it say's a lot about the parents. BUT that doesn't mean things won't crop up, and we also have two younger sons, so I won't say we won't with them, we're just going to keep doing what we're doing, and hope it all works...

  • I am in the same situation as Mrs Leftlane, his bio dad's family is not in his life but I love my son to death and we do have a special bond. he is also almost 15, we've always talked and I've always made it a point to keep communication open.

    I think it's sweet that you have a special relationship with your 18 year old, it's great!

  • My son is amazing. He knows that I am his mom and respects the fact. He likes to hang out with me and comes to me with his problems.
