Family friend's son was not academic, he was tested and found to have a low IQ. He loved to cook and was good with people, so he started a little catering business during high school and hired his friends as servers. Went to cooking school instead of college. Now he's a very successful restaurant owner in our hometown, actually a local celeb who gets invited to cook at events all over the country. Has a lovely wife and kids. IQ and school smarts don't tell the whole story, he's smart enough to run a business and has the people skills to manage employees and rich customers. Better to do an A+ job at something that fits than a C job at something that doesn't. Just help your son find the right path and he will be ok. [ Reply | More ]

It is hard to be motivated when your life is a series of failures. It's really, really hard to keep trying when something that seems to come easily to others is a struggle for you. Sounds like he needs a reason to believe in himself - not empty praise, but to accomplish something and develop some pride so he can see himself as someone capable of following through. Would he try Outward Bound? Volunteering with a Big Brothers program or in a retirement facility? Some sort of apprenticeship with a plumber or electrician? I realize the military is considered NOKD here, but maybe the structure and companionship would be good for him? [ Reply | More ]
