I have a brilliant 19 y/o son who earned a scholarship & seemed to be on track to a bright future. He lost his dad in Feb. & it's been a downward spiral ever since. At first I thought being w/ friends was helpful, but now he seems to have lost his focus on what's important & seems destined for failure instead of greatness. I need helpful advice please.

Perhaps he needs a hum drum monotonous job to go to for a while. Something that doesn't require him to be at the top of his game every single day. If his grades are suffering and he is depressed that he just can't do it all. Let him know that he doesn't have to do it all all of the time. It could be that his biggest problem is that he just can't concentrate and therefore his grade suck, which an honor student almost always reflects back on himself to mean he isn't a valuable person. It hurts to be getting C's in a class you should be getting A's in. Then you don't want to get out of bed and go to class. And that isn't good for your grades. Spiral spiral spiral. Break the pattern with something he is bound to succeed at.
