As your child enters the young adult age, things change. Normally, by now they have developed their own unique interests and goals. However, sometimes this is easier said than done. As a parent, you cannot force your young adult to choose a certain path or pursue a certain lifestyle. Confronting the situation can be even more difficult. This conversation can be extremely overwhelming for young people. No one wants to feel like a failure or like they have no hope. And sometimes parents are the last people that young adults want to have this conversation with. There are resources and ways out there to help for young adults with no direction.
