I know it is tough. But you have to allot at least 20 minutes after bedtime to just hang out with your son. Understand him his likes his goals his interest. Understand his world. His anger his his aggression is attention seeking behaviour. This is a very crucial period. is becaus he is now a teenager. So his behaviour will change. He is now an young adult. You will have to change your way of questioning and also your attitude towards him. Use humour while talking to him. Give him options to choose from. Take him on walks or car drives to engage in conversation as teen boys prefer to beside you while talking. Make this once a week ritual. During such talks gently broach the topic of his future goal. Then guide him on reaching his goals and assure your support. At this stage he may not share Much about school and friends. So create a dinner ritual where each of you share your daily experiences. Be more accepting and patient with the changes. Please be more appreciative. Sit down with him and set a routine. Break his study time into slots of 45 min study and 5 min break. Treat him to an extra hour of play in the weekend if he completes his tasks for the week. Please find some handy tips here- I hope this helps. Please read this - All the best and do keep us posted.
