This is the only place where I think people might not judge me.
I have a 19yo DS. He has been....::sigh::...."troubled" for most of his life. He's not a bad kid. He doesn't drink or use drugs or do terrible things....but he has been in and out of therapists offices for about half of his life. When he was little, they said he had ADD. Then they said he had ODD. Then they thought he might be bi-polar. He's never been properly diagnosed and no treatment has truly helped him. We now think we might be dealing with a personality disorder, and he has recently started with a new therapist. He is currently living at home, is jobless, and seems to be avoiding life in general.
We've been talking about trying to get him into community college or a technical school. He's extremely bright, articulate, etc. Just seems to have no motivation. Well, he kind of wants to go to school....but he has serious anxiety about writing. Writing has been a problem since he was 8-9yo. He CAN write. He's not dysgraphic or anything. He has an excellent sense of grammar and punctuation. He just gets upset and angry when made to compose something, so I never pushed it (because life seemed to make him upset and angry even without writing). So....he's 19yo and probably has the composition skills of a 7th grader.
He now wants to tackle this, and I have no clue where to start. He said he wants a tutor. I am pretty broke. I think if I try to teach him, it will not be pretty. Does anyone have any ideas? Is there any online resource that helps adults? Everything I find online is for kids who already have homework assignments from their school-teachers.
