Query: I’m writing about “failure to launch” syndrome, which is when young adults struggle with becoming independent. I’m looking to connect with licensed therapists to answer the following questions:

  1. How would you define “failure to launch” syndrome? What ages does it affect? Is it a type of mental health condition?
  2. What are some of the causes of “failure to launch” syndrome? Is it
    linked to parenting styles, fear of failure, mental health issues, lack of life skills, etc.?
  3. How can you recognize that your child is struggling with this? What are some signs and symptoms?
  4. How does “failure to launch” syndrome typically affect individuals and families?
  5. How can you “fix” this? Please share tips for parents and also for individuals struggling with it. How to encourage independence? How to learn life skills? When to seek professional help?

Requirements: Licensed therapists. I am only able to respond to experts/PR sources I am interested in using. I can only accept original quotes written by experts–not assistants or AI bots. When sending me emailed answers, please run your content through a plagiarism checker like Copyspace. I am unable to use any content that comes up as a red flag on a plagiarism checker. Thanks!
