Default Help boy just won't listen to me....vid

So as many of you know I've been trying to help the boys improve their riding. My 14 yr old has always been very hard for me to coach so much so I don't. Saves our relationship but I still try to help.
He is really struggling in his jumps and I can see why. He won't watch my SA videos, he hears my advice but doesn't take it or doesn't know how to use the tips I tell him.

Here is a short video of him jumping, some footage was already shown, some is from today's outing. Any suggestions on how to help me help him??? He is really getting frustrated with washing out every landing. Maybe something that made it click for you. A tip for a kid to relate to his dad. Anything useful, we have a good relationship, me coaching him is just something that doesn't work for him and I we are very much alike....
