My 14-year-old son thinks it’s funny to challenge me in public where I don’t want to discipline him in front of other people. How can I address this problem?

This brings back memories. I was that 14 year old son 47 years ago and I mouthed off to my quick-witted Spanish mom in front of my friends. Without missing a beat, she smiled at me and said, “So now you’re a man? Guess you don’t need a ride home, then.” I apologized right then and there because she had driven us all to the mall. With a few choice words my 4′ 11″ mother chopped about a foot off my height and at least a thousand feet off my attitude. Talk about getting put in one’s place…

Edit: My mom was actually from Puerto Rico, but her grandparents moved there from Spain.
