Moms raising teenager boys without dads

Hi I have to laugh I have raised a 33 year old son, a 29 year old son with there in and out dad. Now I am raising a 15 year old son without a dad. Dad left when he was 5 so no real memory of him. I have been plagued with health issue over the past 5 or 6 years so my son has learn to keep the truth of how things are going to either avoid getting into trouble or upsetting me. Due to his asthma and nearly losing him when he was younger I am a protective mom who has done more then my share of things for him. I love him and now I am trying to find a way to help him grow up and do the things he should. He is a good kid but without a close male figure we butt heads. He is seeing a 18 year old girl as long as I am there so hormones have taken over and I am up and down on how to help him. Maybe someone out there can refresh my memory on raising a teenager boy without a dad in the picture. His older brothers are in and out but as you can see age is a big gap. So I am raising a single child teenager. HELP

first of all....he is only 15...he shouldnt be seeing an 18 yr old girl. Is there anyway yall could go to counseling.?.Do you have an older brother or your father that could help.?
