Is this normal?
I have teenagers that don't do this but we all have our quirks of course so not sure if this is normal teen behavior or what and what we can do about it.
So, my oldest SS (almost 15) is very verbal about everything. He makes comments constantly about how his opinion is right and anyone who doesn't agree with him is wrong. He gets combative about it. Even over the stupidest things!! Like if he likes sweet tea and someone else likes lemonade he makes the biggest deal out of it like "why do you like that and not sweet tea? It's so much better and everyone knows it and blah blah blah" it's reallly annoying. It's constant. It's like he always wants to debate, argue, be combative. He thinks his opinion is all that matters and everyone else is stupid. It's like he even gets insulted if we have something on the house that he doesn't like and acts like we shouldn't have things that he isn't interested in. It's weird!! We just keep saying "everyone has their own preferences and that doesn't mean they are wrong if their preference isn't the same as yours" but anything else we can do? His mom has deemed him the Golden child at her house so he expects the same treatment at our house and thats never going to fly.
