I never thought I would be in this situation with my son.He is the middle child,he started the university last fall,and he seems to be doing well at school.He had a high school sweetheart and was in a relationship with her off and on for about 2 years.Finally three weeks ago they final broke up this time it seem that it is for good.He is very depress and very upset with the reason I do not know.He does not want to talk to me and told his fatherland me that he will never again will talk to me.Hecomes and goes from the house without saying where he is going and if I send him a text just to ask him where he his ànd at what time he is comings is reply is STOP.

What can I do I do not eat nor sleep.????

The only thing you can do is to either ignore his rude ans disrespectful attitude, make your expectations known and enforce compliance. Ignore him when he is rude and maintain your dignity..set an example of how one can deal with adversity or unpleasant situations. Enforce the rules of your home and reward positive behaviour rather than issue consequences for bad or unacceptable behaviour, tone etc. Then stop paying for his expenses. Privileges are are earned not a birth right.
