Did getting the diagnosis send your child in defense mode ? Our son has been out of school since last year. We think he had a burnout from struggling for years at school. I wonder how much of his defense mode is due to the shock of his diagnosis a year ago and whether we should be bringing it up with him and working on positive role models etc. He brought it up a few months ago and we discussed it then. Whenever I bring up the idea that he may be stressed, he gets defensive. I’m not sure why. Apart from applying the methods of the defense mode course, I wonder if I should be bringing up the diagnosis or not to help him improve. Thank you
