How do you handle a growing teenager?I have a 16 year old teen.He is a very loving and obedient boy,but sometimes he tells lies or makeup some excuses so that he would not be punished for his own actions.I'm not the really strict kind of mom because his dad is already strict,Iwant to be his friend so that he can open up his feelings towards any issues he would like to discuss but it seems that as he grows older and have more friends outside and in school,heseems to be also growing far fron me.How can I tell him or let him feel that I'm always here for him whatever problems he may encounter?
