Wow - where to start. My son and I were always close but this year (10th grade) we couldn't be farther apart. He verbally abuses me, yells at me, says I am annoying, an idiot, not his mom and on and on. I try to stay calm however, I do take his iphone away, xbox and am on the verge of stopping him from wrestling. I've gotten two emails this week from his teacher's - behavior is bad and not doing homework. Today he told me to leave him alone, he hates school and now doesn't want to go to college. I know he is overwhelmed with work - he doesn't like to study. Not sure how to handle this.
