    My son and I shared an apple ID when we had two iphone 4s phones. My son has now gotten his own apple ID, but our phones still seem linked-- he sees all my incoming and outgoing text messages and when he texts me, it comes back as texted by both of us. I need to know how to separate our phones, but I am not sure how.

    On both devices, go to Settings → Messages → Send & Receive and then uncheck the everything except the phone number. Anyone who send a text or iMessage to your phone number will only be received by you. The same applies to him and his phone number.

    I'd also suggest you setup Family Share and add your son's apple ID to it. That way you can approve/reject purchases from your phone and share apps and music.
