It’s just emotionally draining isn’t it? It’s ok to be overwhelmed by his behaviour.
Just a couple of questions.
- how old is he?
- and what is the birth order?
- is there anything that has happened recently?
Boys can be so aggressive and angry. I hope it doesn’t last long. Sending hugs.

I understand felling totally overwhelmed when your teen is being rude. I have seen it turn a perfectly good day or moment upside down. I have a daughter that has been on a rude spell for quite some time. I get that some rudeness is regular teenage behavior.
I try really hard not to take it personal, and I have learned to control my own emotions when I am with her, I don't yell or cry or fight back not wanting to escalate things. Sometimes I will say- it seems like you are looking for a fight and then I just go quiet. The worst is when she is rude to her little sister and says something hurtful. I make her apologize to her little sister. I tell her I am a big girl and I can take it If you say hurtful things to me- but don't bully your little sister- that's just plain wrong.
I think it has gotten better over time. The more they are in a good place the less they lash out. But probably you have to draw some lines. What is tolerable rude behavior and what is over the line.
Hang in there!
