My son is 21--living at home-- left high school with a GED in his senior year...dropped out of college in his junior year--no job for 4 months. He says he can't find a job....that he's filled out lots of applications. I don't know what to do. I know he smokes marijuana.

If he has insurance, I would tell him to get some counseling or get out.

Ask him why he gave up, what is he afraid of...sounds like maybe failure?

Give him a couple of months and say nothing to him about any of it...he will eventually figure it out.

Get a calendar and shoe him what date, 2 months, 1 month, he has to find a job or move out..mark it so that he knows.

RE: a job, does he have transportation?

My brother-in-law said the day his grandfather put his belongings our on the front porch, was the day he woke up to reality.

Just sugestions...I have been there as well, but my sons caught on.

Good luck and keep asking for feed back as well...you may receive more feedback if you post this thread on Support threads as well.
