He has always been pretty responsible but lately started really slacking. I'm having to repeat myself a lot. This morning he couldn't find a hoodie. He has 5, turns out 4 have been left at school. 5th was dirty. I told him you need to be responsible and be bringing home your hoodies everyday. He got right in my face raising his voice to me saying "I AM RESPONSIBLE!" I told him you are not to get in my face and yell at me, bring me your ipod. He freaked out, throwing a huge fit saying "you and dad don't love me." As the fit went on his dad told him "you need to calm down." He's never yelled at me before. Do all teenagers try this? Was I too hard on him by taking it away?
