I have been trying to have discussions with my 18 ds about getting his life in the right direction and he always says "I don't care"? What is the real meaning behind that, because I know deep down he does care! He is bright and has a great sense of humor that could take him far. He says I make him feel like crap, and I love him and do not mean to. Help?Answer Question

When they say, "I don't care", the probability is that they actually do care. I believe that when you talk with him or suggest something to him about his life he feels like your trying to tell him what to do. Therefore, he probably knows that the last thing YOU want to hear is, "I don't care."
I would just tell him, "I love you and want only the best for you but you're going to make your own decisions and reap your own consequences. If you ever want to talk you know I'm here for you." Let him live and learn when you can. I know it's hard to watch your young adult make bad choices or not live up to their capabilities. I know as a parent I expect Great Things from my children. I'm sure you are no different.
