Failure To Launch

FAILURE TO LAUNCH, is a pejorative jargon term used in two different ways: for 18 + year olds who withdraw from college due to performance problems, or the college grad who moves home and is not motivated to move out.  Both of these situations might be symptoms of anxiety, depression, executive functioning weaknesses, social skills weaknesses, entitlement, or lack of life skills.  Many of the young adult treatment options have tracks or specifically focus on developing life skills, treating  the underlying  psychological weaknesses and successively increasing challenges on young adults toward their full independence.
