Re: 19 yr old son playing computer games and not working

I would talk to him nicely and just start talking about his future and what his goals are and how to achieve them. Many of us with adhd lack foresight into the future, we live in the here and now and don't always think about how our actions are affecting our future. He needs support, but the support needs to be firm. He is 19, but still lives at home, and you're still mom. Take the games away but do it in a supportive way. Tell him you're doing it for his own good. Is he on meds?
