My son & I have ALWAYS been close. The past year has been SO difficult. Sadly, his father & I divorced when he was 6. I encouraged a relationship between them w both of them for years. Now, my son is so rude & distant. 😥😢💦

Welcome to the teenage years. It doesn't seem to matter whether parents are divorced, married, unmarried, but living together...Hormones abound at this age!
Be patient. Let him know that your love for him is constant, and consistent, but your LIKE for his actions is not. Do not tolerate rudeness and disrespect. He needs to understand that he's not the king of the hill...every teen seems to hit this stage.
Are you and his dad co-parenting? You do need to both be on the same page both on the disciplinary side and the reward side.
Now, here's teh good news: This DOES end! At least it did with mine...LOL...Hang in there!
