I need help! My 15 year old son & I have always been real close & now he barely speaks to me, is defiant with simple house rules & just plain disrespectful. He doesn't scream obsenities or use physical violence but I am still frustrated with his blantant disrespect! You see, we just moved to a beautiful house 30 minutes from our old 2 bedroom apartment. This move of course means leaving his friends & school...leaving him with feelings of anamosity, which I completely understand from moving regularly as a kid myself. I explained to him that life is always a series of changes & asked him to have an open mind & give it a chance. His reply..."I don't want to." In addition, he has chosen to let his grades fall & is not putting forth the straight A effort that he has throughout his school years. It breaks my heart that he is doing this just to spite me! I have had many, many talks with him trying to get him to see that this is a good thing. Only to receive blank stares & shoulder shrugging. I miss my son terribly...the laughs we use to have, the hugs & the I love you's. But now he is just down right mean for the purpose of being mean, & I really don't even want to be around him. I love him tremendously...just don't like him very much. I'm sure it will just take time for him to accept the changes...but how do I get thru this period of "attitude" in the meantime?
