"How am I supposed to remain composed and supportive when my son keeps shutting me out?"

It can be hard to know what’s going on in your teenager’s head, especially when all you really want to do is help them and they keep giving you the cold shoulder! Being a parent of a teen is far from easy. This week’s Tips on Teens addresses a parenting question from a parent wondering how to handle being constantly shut down by her teen. Here’s the question:

"How am I supposed to remain composed and supportive when my son keeps shutting me out? I have a 13 year old son who has become so rigid lately. I feel like I can’t say anything right and he’ll just completely reject me or shut me out of almost anything. I really want to be there for him and support him but he really doesn’t give the chance. Honestly, it hurts and I feel like I’m being taken for granted. I’m really at a loss."
