My son

I've been dealing with my 20 yrs old son treating me like I'm his enemy, I ask him the same question 5 time before he would answer, and he's extremely secretive ..

I have a 22 year old and worry about him but trust him enough to be careful and I had a 24 years old who died last year, live is to short let him live it, but just ask him to be careful and to think before he does anything xxxxx

He's an adult so you need to treat him like one. He doesn't need to tell you everything and you really shouldn't be asking. If he wants to tell you he will.

Well, he's an adult. Do you need to know everything about his life? Did you tell your parents everything about your life after you reached adulthood?

Seriously! If he's living in your home, then common courtesy dictates that he treat the rest of the household with respect, but sharing every single detail about his life is pushing. And you are pushing, if you're wanting him to still tell you everything like he did when he was 5.

Perhaps he's trying to tell you that he's uncomfortable with the level of your involvement, now that he's reached the age of majority!
