Hello,



I am a single mother with a 14 year old that has a major attitude all of the time.He has recently been living with me full time. He lived with his father during the week. The father has manipulated the kids into staying with him although I have fought for the last 8 years in court. My son decided to speak out for himself . My son finally expressed to the judge what his father has done and requested to live with me full time. I now have custody full time. My son doesn't even want to deal with his father. He says he is angry but doesn't really know why. It has been a difficult transition for him. He had decided to take on a new school, which he enjoys and has made new friends. I am happy to finally give him the peaceful life that I fought so hard for.My son has expressed that he feels calmer living with me but is angry most of the time and doesn't like to study. He ask me why do I care so much? This breaks my heart. Although he will talk with me at times....he resist any additional help from teachers or counselors... Is it just the age thing...Probably bad timing being 14 and the move and all..Any advice..(
