My 16-year-old son avoids discussing anything with his father because he yells about everything. It's impossible for our son to bond with him because he's so intimidated by him. I've tried discussing this with my husband, but he thinks it's all nonsense and is suspicious that I've told our sons things to turn them against him, which is ridiculous. Whenever he's away on business, it's like a big party in our house because we laugh and there's no tension. What the heck do I do to fix this before our son moves out in 2 years and goes to college? I notice he's taking the same approach with our 10-year-old. I'm exhausted and tense from his yelling, I never know what mood he's in when he walks into the room. Any thoughts?
