I’ve read all of the defense mode articles , watched the videos. My son trusts me implicitly- he only makes eye contact with me, only opens up to me- he will NOT open up to a stranger. Or even family. He’s 21 and I’ve been introducing him to the idea of a very part time job. He is not motivated by money, or anything else. I’ve cut off the internet, etc but he’s ok just dealing with it. It’s less scary than interacting with people. He’s anxious pulling out garbage cans, getting mail. He was doing ok up through junior year. He’s 21 now. I’ve built trust and he knows I love him. I’m just at my wits end.
