when i homeschooled my son (my first teen) during his 7th gr., i noticed he doesn't like anymore of my 'micromanaging'over his lessons.. he insisted on being independent. I saw it as a sign of pushing his boundaries on becoming as an 'adult.'. I insisted though to have some 'accountability' (check his work,attitude).

If he is your first teen, grow up with him. I read a lot of books & interview a lot of other parents to 'educate' myself. I have learned not to take any of his resistance as a personal attack. With reasonable boundaries (esp. when it comes to health & safety) he will grow to be a very capable person & you'll be proud of what he can do & how he is becoming into his own person.

God makes everything beautiful in His time. This is his time to be a teenager. I pray you are able to see the 'beauty' of him being a teen.
