My 12 y/o son has been very distant lately and when I went to talk to him about it (cause we use to talk about anything & everything) he got really upset with me and told me that there was nothing wrong and to stop asking him. So i left it at that. But a month prior to this we were talking about a girl he really liked and wanted to ask out but mind you she is a girl he grew up with when he goes to his dad's on the weekends and apparently she has turned him down twice and he is all upset, IDK if it's the rejection, puberty or what but he wouldn't talk to me, so I got his father on the phone (since that was the only person he would talk to) and apparently my son hates me and doesn't know why and can't explain it and doesn't want to live with me anymore. So his dad decided to take him for the summer, which is killing me because I have never been away from him more than a weekend. I am so confused and don't know how to handle this? My son is currenlty giving me the silent treatment and won't talk to me, does anyone have any ideas what I can do to get him to talk to me like we use to?? If it is puburty or what?? I just dont get how we went from be really close and talking about everything to this??
