My 19 yr old son has no direction in life. Has had many failed job that he just doesn't fit in to. He is bright and intelligent but doesn't think he is, having low self esteen. I was wondering if he could join Americorp ( just staying in the USA of course) and that by the grace of god he could find his right path.

Hello Diane; It is such a waste of one's life to be disinterested in using it to the best...
and is the bane of a Mother's Desire to send her
children forth with talent and tools. But at your
your son's age, if there ever was a time there is nothing that can be done for it now... until HE wants to take the responsibility of his actions or the lack of them... everyone has their own level.

At my age of 73, I have three very intelligent sons - at least IQ-wise - who are happy to let life pass them by and after decades of hoping, I began my own life and joined Peace Corps.

Should your son wonder out loud how he can get
energy [my sons didn't] maybe a Naturopath, or other doctor of Alternative Medicine could check him out - to rule out energy eating poor blood sugar regulation, fungus or parasite population which eats its host's nutition, anemia, a diet which does not provide sustaining energy... not that that is all he needs but it's a start...
maybe he already has his life mapped out.

Whole sections of magazines are rife with how much energy was obtained with the above adjustments while using inexpensive natural medicines which help and do not have side effects.

Volunteers in Americorp and Peace Corps for that
matter, are highly energized, are self starters, very organized. Quit beating yourself up, Mama.
