Uh, yeah, I'd be grounding him a week, too, for calling your mother an idiot. Why is he with your mother? And is he doing this just to get her to bring him home to you because he knew this would be the outcome?

Sorry I meant my mam (mother) im from Newcastle. .just my accent lol. He's called her an idiot twice last night an she's just rang me up this morning saying she's had enough off his attitude an bringing him home. I spoke to him on the phone last night and told him his cheek was disgusting an if he carried on he would get grounded. ..an sure enough he has. Im sick of the way he treats my mam an back answers.

How is he being cheeky? Is it just trying to see how far he can go with a new man in your life? How long have you been together?
I guess I wouldn't ground him for being "cheeky" but if he is being downright rude and nasty, it's a different story.
Have you asked you son why he is acting this way? Maybe sit down and listen to what he has to say, not tell him how he should be feeling.
