My son is EXACTLY the same. He graduated from high school last June and tried community college for a semester but that didn’t work. he just quit his second job in two years. I refuse to give him any money so I hope that being broke will motivate him to get out and get a job, but who knows. This was my nightmare when he was younger and he wouldn’t join any teams/ clubs/ activities and it seems it is coming true. Now he is not in school, does not have a job, has no friends he hangs out with, just plays video games and watches videos of other people playing video games. my heart is breaking.
