Hi

I agree with Dr Sharanabasappa. Everyone develops their own coping mechanisms & adaptability based on their own personality traits, environmental issues, support mechanisms etc. Sometimes it may be inadequate. See if the person has developed emotional problems & assess the impact too. Seek professional help if not sure. Best wishes

Hi, first thing is look for whether he has any kind of emotional or psychiatric problems, it is not necessary that everyone who has been neglected in childhood should have problems in adulthood.
Look for problems and select the therapy.
