Thank you for your thoughts. My son is an only child and I only have one chance to be the best mom I can be. We still have a bond, it's just not as strong as it once was. I will always be the rookie mom with one child and no other to compare or correct my views on what is best for my son. I want to know that when challenge arises, I am doing my best as a mom. Even if it means stepping down and letting him resolve his reasons for pulling away. I guess I have to work on space invasion and having to grab a handle on my heart from breaking. I have let him know that when and if he is ready to talk, he knows where to find me. In the meantime, I'll try to look for those tiny ways to build on to a new and improved bond.

It is natural for a teenage son to pull away from his mom. My son will be 15 in a couple of weeks and is doing the same thing. It hurts me sometimes but even though he pulls away he still loves me. Just be patient and give him his space. Try and look for tiny ways to build on your bond. I hope this helps
