Hey @Swijn001 ,
That sounds like a difficult situation for you. On one hand you're sorry about yelling at your son, but on the other hand, you feel vindicated in what you said because you don't want to be a doormat. What you did by standing up for yourself sounds very reasonable. You've apologised for yelling but not what you said. That sounds absolutely fair on your part. By doing this, you've placed a boundary that saying that it's not ok to be disrespected
Given the timeframe (4 months), it's possible your son has been taken back by your stance, as 4 months of this behaviour is long enough to feel somewhat normal. If this is the case, he may not talk to you as he is processing how you responded. This could take time. It may behoove you to stand your ground and give him time to process, and eventually come back to you.

Do I continue to ask him to do things even though he is showing absolutely not sign he is listening to me.
I asked him the other day if he was going to food or would he like me to freeze it. He didn't acknowledge me at all. That in itself is disrespectful too. Do I let it go. Or say yes you can not talk to me but for things like that you need to give me an answer. He has the use of our second car and I said to my husband we should take it off him. He is still doing nothing around the house though.

It looks like you’re visiting us from a country other than Australia.
We are an Australian service and think you’d benefit more from looking up a similar service in your country.
You are welcome to look around the forums, but please don’t make an account or post, as we can’t offer you the help you may need.
Before you go ahead and post, you should know that we remove non-Australian accounts – not because we don’t want to help or connect with you, but because we may not be able to provide you with the service that you require.
