I could have written this message MumEJ. Also a single Mum, a 16 year old boy and twin 12 year old girls. Ex husband acts the “friend” and I am the only one doing any parenting!! My son has always been respectful, and quite protective and we were very close but seems overnight he is pulling away, testing boundaries and doing NOTHING! He would love me to leave him in his room on screens and to stop “roasting” him (his words). Also has first girlfriend. I too feel quite hurt and saddened by this as it is yet another male in my life I feel I’m losing. I realise too a lot of this is normal teenage behaviour and so someone told me quite common when boys get their first girlfriend as they have to distance themselves from their “first love”. Little bit heartbroken, I feel like I am just constantly nagging! The nagasaurous! Lol!
