It's a condition of puberty. He will grow out of it. Someday. Probably.
I mean, my kids turned teenager, and the little angel became a terrorist, and the one that was a terrorist as a kid went brain dead.
The terrorist only took 8 years to grow out of it. I am no longer afraid to be alone in a room with her. The other one only took 10 years to wake up again, including a 4 year Navy stint. They tried, God knows they tried, but in the end they sent him home with a note pinned on his coat that said "sorry cannot fix stupid"
