I think your son is probably doing what comes naturally-trying to wean himself from Mom, and strike out alone. (in a small way, at home.) Looking back, my now 20 year old did this, too. By the time he was 17, he wanted to be very independent, learn things on his own, he bristled at taking instruction from Mom (in a polite way, mostly.) He was learning to lead. I noticed he became more of a confidante to his younger brother, taking the lead and teaching him new things. He was emerging as the leader God made him to be.
His 14 year old brother (like yours) is just now experiencing this in small ways. He is not as independent as his brother, very shy, but he, too, is learning how to do things on his own. And finding, he likes it! He absolutely hates when I remind him to do things. Something he never did before.

Bathe him in prayer. Ask God to bring out his leadership qualities (which will clash with mom at times), and for wisdom in letting him lead in some areas of homeschooling. I would let my son draw up his own hs plans, lead us in prayer more often, and ask for his advice on stuff. He loved this one.
God bless.
