... for a piece of writing I'm working on. Not the usual things, like breaking curfews, sleeping all the time and not bathing, but more bsubtly, niggling acts of defiance against parents....

Hmmmmm from what I can rember of being a teenager I don't really think we did PA as I think (not sure) that PA is something we perfect later on in life smile actually just not to adults I think teenagers would do it to each other in a bullying type situation perhaps?

Have you been watching educating Essex on c4 it shows very interesting hmm teenage behaviour.

Well my DS never disagrees with me " Yes mum " ,but this usually has no correlation with his actions ,it's just to shut me up/get me off his back .
Other remarks in same category " I'll finish and go to bed in 10 minutes ."
" Yes ,I'll do it later " .
Not sure if this is exactly passive aggresive or not .

Ignore it all unless you have to (and can successfully) deal with it.

If he is washing, obeying curfew and working in school, let other things (within reason) go [voice of bitter experience here].

Or give us specific examples to work with....
