"I am frustrated. Stop saying 'whatever'..."
I have a teenaged son. Lately, he often disagrees with me and even argues with me when I try to talk to him. He doesn’t want to listen to me. Sometimes he just says, “Whatever…” to me and I don’t like that attitude. Ate Anna, there are so many temptations and negative influences out there – drugs, sex, alcohol and gangs. It is important for me to give advice to my son about making good choices in life. But I am having difficulty communicating with him. I am so frustrated. What can I do?
Dear Ate Anna,
