PDA help-motivating a PDA teen My PDA son (16) is really struggling with basic skills such as mornings, school attendance and self care when it comes to eating, exercising, and dealing with his digestive system. School is “stupid and not with my time and full of busy work”. Dad makes things worse due to very authoritarian approaches and the shame game. As soon as something becomes a demand kiddo shuts down and accomplishes nothing. His preference is to stay in his room and play video games. We take it away and he shuts down for days and it does improve his mood and focus. But as soon. As he gets it back we are in a cycle again. It would be really great to have some resources for setting boundaries for PDA teens.
