Why has my 12 year old's development gone backwards?

He's now obsessively addicted to bloody pokemon, his social skills have gone backwards and he's now covering his ears/getting upset/sobbing when he's asked to do something he doesn't particularly like. confused He has friends, but only on the pokefarm web site hmm It's hard work trying to get him out of the house as this is all he wants to do (I don't let him though). He wasn't like this 6 months ago. What do I do?

Thank you.

Has he changed schools??

No. They have mixed the classes up though and he's now in the same class as a kid who bullied him last year. Ds has said he's been OK though.

Only asked as wondered about bullying at school or just the changes may affect him ... something to think about. Kids don't always talk about what's going on as they don't like parents to make a deal or fuss out of it .....

He's told me about it in the past. I've asked to see his personal tutor. He says he only does this when he's stressed, I can't understand why he's not done this before though.

Stressed about what though ??

Usually it's when I ask him to do something, he says it's my tone confused I don't shout, I'm not rude or harsh. I've no idea.

Thank you smile
