Help - How should I react when my teenage son is deliberately mean to me?
Yesterday, my 17-year old got stressed out when we were lost on a highway far from home. He was driving. When he realized way we were supposed to go, he panicked and ran a red light causing a large van to swerve to avoid a terrible collision. Everyone was okay, but in the heat of things, he screamed and swore at me, calling me a B***h. I took over the driving, his call, and he ignored me all the way home (3 1/2 hours)Today my 14-year old could not find his iPod, so he took all the old pictures I had stacked on the counter and stuffed them in the garbage, presumably they were interfering with his search. I am very hurt by this. What should I do?
