Would hostel life make him respect you? The reason for sending him to hostel is not the right one. He could get more aggressive and hate you for sending him away. Have you talked about this to him? Does he agree? Maybe you should have a chat. Talk to him as if he is your friend. Tell him how you are upset and why . Help him understand. He may not be aware of it at all. During teenage , he needs you but he will not tell. He is going through so many changes in his body and mind. Have you listened to his ideas and opinion? Have you tried to understand from his perspective? Often we parents expect our children to understand us but how much are we understanding them. Do not take his arguments personally. At this stage friends will be more important. Go out with him. Spend time talking and getting to know his world better.
