How do I get my son to be more afectionate towards me.
When I try to show affection through hugs, recognizing his special days (birthdays, achievements, graduation, etc.,), or by planning activities together he doesn't show much emotion back which makes me feel very unappreciated.
I am a single mom and I delayed my career to be home for him until he started highschool.
I know that teenagers go through phases, but this is not something I will accept as he is not being very friendly.
What do you suggest?
