I have a 14 years old son who is ungrateful, unappreciative and disrespectful. He doesn't do well with being grounded especially when he has plans with friends. When he doesn't get his way, he is rude, defensive and belittles me, which makes me yell at him. I'm full of hurt, sadness and anger that its so hard to control my volume. I never curse or use harsh words.
When he was younger, We always had a good lines of communication (at least I think we did.) However, as a teenager, he feels the need to challenge my authority.
I miss my sweet innocent lovely little boy. How do I get that closeness back?
