Child has difficulty concentrating, getting distracted. What can I do?

Hello, My son is studying engineering now, and he has been known to be a really bright student in school. He went to study outside of the country for about 2years, he didn t as good as we expected so we brought him back . This is his first year in college here, but, again, he is not doing very well either. He is never concentrating and always gets distracted. What can I do? He is my only child. Please help me.

Children will listen to parents during childhood. But during the adolescence and at the end of adolescence there are many distractions for them like friends, movies, internet because of their own interests and hormonal changes. Parents also should understand this stage and you should behave as a friend and you should divert him towards setting one goal and make him to reach goal. You should explain him what is the correct path. If you still feel you can go for counselling with clinical psychologist.
