Hi Concerned Mom
The best thing is 2 contact the parents and ask them 2 take their daughter to a therapist that will help her with her problems. The girl needs time on her own that she can sort out who she is and what she wants out of life. Your son need 2 step down, because at the end of the day he will just make her more unhappy if he is unhappy and subconsciously project it on to her. I know he just wants to help but he can not make her dependent on him - she needs 2 be able to stand on her own 2 feet. He can still support her but she need to be guided by a therapist who will enable her to become a fuctional person again.
