Hi, I understand that you're finding this difficult. However, this is your son's life and he is close to becoming an adult, he could legally leave home if he felt like it. You breached his trust by reading his diary instead of waiting for him to talk to you, it's no surprise he doesn't want to talk to you, if he can't trust you why would he open up to you? From what you're saying it sounds as though you've suddenly lost trust in him because he won't open up to you, well it is fairly common for a teenager to go out on their own for hours and if he doesn't want to tell you where he's going then that may be because you have breached his trust. His faith is his own choice, that is not up to you. Perhaps discuss this with other people, and see what they say. Look outside of yourself and consider how you would feel if your parents had done the same to you. He's growing up and at some point you're going to have to let go and that's going to be sooner than you'd like, especially if you keep pushing his boundaries and breaking his trust. If you feel you need further support please e-mail us at askus@familylives.org.uk or contact us through our live chat service which is open, Monday to Friday between 1.30pm and 5.30pm or call our freephone helpline on 0808 800 2222.
