Some young adults fail to leave the home at an appropriate time because they don’t have the characteristics they need to make it on their own in the real world.

It is becoming more and more common to see this issue taking place, as young people who are graduating college seem to be moving right back home, or even worse, aren’t going to college at all. This happens because they still need to develop the traits that will lead them to successful, independent lives.

If your son or daughter is lacking ambition and failing to move out or start their own life, there are ways to help them become more responsible and motivated. New Directions has been assisting young people in learning to manage their schooling, careers, and personal lives for many years, so call us for assistance at 1-877-763-5102.

The Characteristics That Unite These Struggling Youth

1 – Spoiled – One of the most common reasons that men and women lack the motivation to take care of themselves is because they are too used to everything being taken care of for them. When their every desire has always been provided for, it can be hard for them to accept that their parents won’t take care of everything anymore.

2 – Lazy – Men and women who are go-getters and understand the value of hard work rarely have to rely on their parents for support as they get older. It is those who have never had to work hard or be self-sufficient who are bound to struggle.

3 – Unsure – If your adult child still lives at home, the issue might just be that they don’t know what direction to take, and aren’t sure what they want to do with their lives. Teaching them to explore their interests and become self-aware can help them solve this problem.
