I have to keep telling him where I’m going and what I am doing. I feel I need time alone in the house sometimes. My teenaged son doesn’t understand why it bothers me so much. It’s just that I have no time left for myself now.
He may be continuously questioning you because he just needs a reason to talk to you. He is now working at his own pace, so there is a lot of free time on hand. When it gets to you just tell him that you need some ‘me’ time. I am sure he will understand. You can also make his work area in one corner of the house from where he cannot monitor every movement of yours. Also, you could step out for a while. Make fitness a part of your routine or you can even pursue some creative activity.
