I am a mother of a 17yr old boy & 10yr old girl. Recently my son & I have been going through it. I love my kids to death and wouldn't change nothing, but their attitudes sometime.
My son graduates this June and for some reason here lately he has been this kid idk. I ask him to do things he does it when he feels like it, rolling eyes blowing what I say off, then he did not come home from school & came in the house at 11pm on a school night! A 1st for me.
Talk about beyond pissed! I ask where he had been he says playing basketball, but doesn't come in the house with his ball. Then I ask where he says up the street wth! I ask who he was with he says the kids in the neighborhood! So I explain to him how folks out here don't care about race, male or female, age or how big you are they will kidnap or kill anyone he shrugged his shoulders. He had 20 Days until graduation and he is making my blood boil.
This morning we got into it, where I was going to call the police. My son is 6'5 220, I'm 5'6 he may be bigger but I don't want to or my hands on him cuz if he buck back I'm going to jail.
He has been acting out since his step dad passed away a few years ago, but not like this. I'm tired of fighting with him. I have asked my brother's & friends to talk to him, and he will be cool for a minute and then we are back to the bs.
I don't want to give up on him like my mom did me, idk what to do at this point anymore.
