Seeking expert counseling is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective.
I believe that I can help.
Unfortunately, your son is normal. It is the "new normal" and it is unhealthy in many ways, but it is not an individual disorder, but rather a social disorder.
Yes, I am starting to think about that. I just can't relate to it
He does have a social life of like-minded friends, you say, and so he is quite normal.
Yes. but all they do is close themselves in a room and play video games/watch movies, little interaction with outside world
Sometimes he may go to a sport game, once a month or so
You were raised differently, but at a time when some of our society was becoming unraveled.
He does have interaction with the outer world, but it is electronic. He is living in the world into which he was born.
Yes, that is true. Thanks for your help.
I don't promote this, but in order to change him you have to live in a different culture or time, or like the Amish (who have no depression, did you know?)
Your son is in college, presumably doing well.
I believe that he will be fine.
Yes, he is doing well, he is focused on his career, has 1 year to go
Perhaps your family can go hiking or camping once in a while just to smell the flowers and breath the air.
yes, i invite him to go walking every week in a beach nearby, which we do
I shall keep your family in my prayers. You are blessed with a good son, and your weekly walk's are a Godsend to all of you.
You are so welcome. He will be fine !
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX peace
