I have a 22 year old son who has no motivation what so ever to move out. He has had jobs on and off, did some upgrading of high school marks. He plays a lot of video games and goes to the gym and thats it. He stays in his room more than anything and I find it so unhealthy. I talk to him every day, afraid he's falling into depression but he doesn't say much. He is a good kid, isn't into drugs, drinks occasionally and not into trouble. He's more on the shy side. I live with a guy that is at his wits end with this living arrangement. Recently we had a very traumatic incident in our home that involved my son. His best friend from grade school died in his sleep from a fentanyl overdose in our home. My son found him. Very sad, and very heartbreaking for my son and I. My son does not do drugs and had not seen him in 3 months before the night he passed.
I'm mentioning all this because i am so worried about my sons well being along with being on him to get motivated, get a job and move on with his life. I don't want to push too much. What can I do? He's a good kid just not motivated.
Any suggestions or help would be much appreciated.
