My 13 yr old son constantly questions me!

I have an awesome son, very bright, funny, popular, has a job, but is totally lazy around the house, and worse he is always challenging my intelligence. When I say NO he requires a full explanation and it gets exhausting going back and forth. I am a single Mom with two sons, so I have no back up! A little advice would be helpful. Thank you

No you don't have to give him a full explanation, you tell him no and that's it. You can tell him 1 reason why you have said no and that's it. You are the parent and you don't need to explain all your reasons to him.
He will eventually get the message when you tell him it's the final decision and if he doesn't want to accept it then things will be taken away.
