My 17 y son will not talk openly anymore!

My son just started grunting or answering me in monosyllables for a year now . He hides everything about his life. We used to be so open, so close. Is it just his age?

I feel your pain. My son and I were very close until about 1 year ago. He is now 15. He used to tell me everything, and talk openly. Now he is very quiet unless I ask direct questions, then I too get a lot of shoulder shrugging etc. I do believe it is their age, but yes it is hard to take!!! The reason they are so secretive is because they know that whatever they are doing is probably something we don't want them to do, Don't worry though, I am told that 'they come back to us eventually'. I can't wait for that day:)
