My 18-year-old son is a freshman in college, staying on campus. When he left we allowed our 13-year-old daughter move into his "bigger room" in our basement. We remodled our daughter's room for our son so he would have a nice bedroom when he came home on breaks. Ever since when he comes home he is disrespectful to us. He plays loud music slams dresser draws and ignors us. He told us that we asked for this type of behavior/attitude because we took his room away. His presence in the home right now is making me misreable. He is home for Christmas and his behavior breaks my heart. We never had any problems with him; always a good student/athlete. He currently goes to school full time and works part time. He is responsible for his tuition but we make his car, cell phone, and insurance payments along with making sure he has everything he needs. I am on the verge of kicking him out but scared he will never want a relationship with his family. I fear this because he is very strong willed. Any suggestions?
