not sure is that is an aspergers problem. I think it might be a teenage problem.

As far as how to fix it. Set rules. I know it sounds silly to do it to a 15 year old but the truth is you and him need them to set limits. Tell him being rude is not acceptable. If he decides to be rude there will be a set consequence. If it were me, (i also have a 15 year old) I would say a rude comment would get his ip blocked from the router for 2 hours. Which would mean he has no internet.

Other than that, leave yourself open for conversation. There is something socially going on from what it sounds. Maybe rejection by a girl. Or him and his best friend are on not-so-good terms. Simply say in passing" If there is anything you need to talk about i'm willing to try to listen and not be judgmental" don't wait for an answer and just walk away. Try to remember being 15 is hard.

Also ask him if there is anything you can do for him. This could be anything from dropping him off at a skate park, a friends house, what ever it may be. maybe getting an after school job might help him. It will give him a chance to make social networking with people outside of the school. There are many places that will hire 15 year olds. Some that I know of - waterparks, coffeeshops (dunkindonuts for example) libraries, local parks, look in your area you'll find him something.

Hopefully whatever he is going through passes soon and he can level back out for you. If nothing else, remind yourself this ball of teenaged hormones is your baby and you love him.

My son doesn't want to admit that he has a problem and thinks that we are the ones issues- he never had behavior problems until now- he is not respecting his teachers anymore and thinks that we are against him-he wants to be left alone. He isolated himself from everyone- He is calling himself the outcast- When I approach him, he tells me to leave him alone that he does not care about anybody-He will not talk to the school psychologist or anybody- We tried everything, but he will not open up to anybody- He is rude and unrespectfull with everybody.

you need to be more specific to the problems you're having if you're looking for suggestions on how to correct or deal with him.
