Lack of respect and manipulation

I am finding it really difficult as my son makes me feel powerless and chooses to ignore any thing I say - I feel really disrespected- it has been especially hard because his dad is away a lot with work and I'm left to deal with things- I have got to a point where I don't want to be left alone with him- this makes me feel sad because we used to have a great relationship 😖 I also have a younger son but thankfully he is a ray of sunshine

Find mutual ground with him so that you are together-be it as a team, or just hanging out- sounds like he's distanced himself...probably due to him maturing. Find a mutual interest with him that makes him feel more mature( maybe going to shooting range, or, shooting pool, or maybe volunteering to help others )
