My son is a Junior in college. Good son, lots of volunteer work, an RA. I feel he wastes time by easily becoming distracted with the texting or computer networking, but perhaps there is more.
He is at a good competitive university. In the scale of 4 he is at about 3.3 average. He feels bad about his grades and overall college performance and is quite stressed.
His aim was on becoming a medical doctor, which would still be his preference.
He finds difficult to analyze, taking exams where he gets good grades and now is losing all direction on what to become and what and how best to study.
A difficult term is about to start with difficult courses has him thinking that there is a very little chance to get into medical school. So he comes to me, dad, for recommendation on what to do
As a parent I want to lead him to find the solution. I don't have it. Is it a visit to a psychologist? Learn better study habits and time management skills? Advise him to pursue other fields? Maybe he just does not have the analytical mind to get there. Can he improve it? Is it that the distractions can be the core of it all? How can he with time constraints he has, still improve time management skills?
What would be my first step to give him good advice?
