My goodness. It sounds exactly like my 11 years old. He was never diagnosed with ADD or ADHD. He does alright in school with As and B’s (6th grade), but he is generally not interested in anything other than computer games. We’ve tried all kinds of sports,music, activities. Nothing sticks and everything seems boring for him. I play board games and I tried to come up with fun ideas to do with him, but he either rejects me right away without even trying, or he does it once and loses interest. I am not sure what to do. It is really frustrating.
