Defiant teen son

I have a teen son who is just totally defiant towards my husband. This is not his father but he has raised him since he was 3. My son and my husband get into screaming matches over things that we would just handle. It has gotten to the point now where my son will run from the house at night if I am not home. If I am I am usually able to diffuse the situation. I have no idea what to do at this point.

I would suggest professional help - a really good LMFT that can work with you and your husband, and then all 3 of you together.

I don't believe problems such as this will just work themselves out on there own....you guys need a new approach before something serious happens.

Take care,
