I think it is a teenage thing too, my DS16 with autism, has always loved to be in the house and go nowhere, but this year he suddenly is bored and has to go somewhere everyday. Seriously gets upset if we don't have plans to go somewhere, it's like some switch went on and suddenly he can't sit in the house anymore. Hang in there! Glad the hair dyeing went well - great way to alleviate boredom!
