Failure to Launch: research on a growing population of young adults.

For the past 15 years, I have had more and more parents after my talks frustrated and feeling hopeless with their young adult who seems to be failing to launch into a more independent life. They often use the terminology of failure to launch. This conversation has so much nuance, but I wanted to start some research on this.

The narrative is often very similar. 18-30-year-old son, lives in parents’ basement, plays videos games most of their life, works a few shifts a week, has no future plans, dropped out of any post-secondary education, smokes weed daily, very few friends, is single, and an overwhelming lack of purpose to name a few things.

I would love to hear any thoughts, resources, podcasts, or books on this topic as I begin to put it all together for a youtube video.

I am going to post all of my research along the way. The first book I am reading on this topic is:
