Son 19 flunked college..now what?
My oldest son 19 made a great ACT score and was sent to
college on his money grandparents set aside for him.
He flunked out first semester and was given another
semester to regroup. He never got up and went to
classes so he quit second semester and came home telling
us he would go to Jr. college this Fall. We told him he
had to be in school or work full time until Jr. college
started. Now he doesn't want to go to Jr. college but
doesn't make enough at his job to be able to move out
on his own. He's stuck in a low paying dead end job and
living at home with no goals for his life. We live in a
small town so there are few good jobs. He hates his life
because he doesn't know what to do with himself and has
little motivation to get where he wants to be.
What is the next step as parents we take with our son?
We realize he needs to grow up but how do we help him
do that? What should we expect from him.....
