Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
Your son's lack of focus in the job appears to be a concern for you. ADD( is it attention deficit disorder?) can be treated with medicines. Reasons and the treatment methods for lack of focus on the job are several. All these need to be evaluated ( eg, being in a love affair, drug addictions, being depressed, having some other psychiatric problem like personality disorder etc). Best way to do this is to talk to one or two psychiatrist or psychologist. You can discuss without taking your son also.
