BT that's rough. And touching.
Much respect. My son is 13 and I am almost always in a state of fear and anxiety over what might happen or what is to come, as I remember my teenage years of being a miscreant. People tell me he's gonna be twice the trouble or the same as I was, or that everything will be okay (that's my parents, who put up with me - but it's a miracle I'm alive, no doubt.)
My son has his faults but he's actually more well behaved and with a better moral compass than I had. I've been teaching him the NAP before I knew it existed. I just knew it as the golden rule.
