Customer Question
My son is 19 years...
My son is 19 years old.There was no abuse, but "He feels scared of his father".
He cannot say that he will not want to visit every other weekend.He has difficulty
expressing overall.
However he feels frustrated, depressed,and recently physically agitated.It is effecting
me significantly.
Obviously his father does not process these issues at all
Please....How can I help him?
