comment Motivation for my 25 year old daughter
You are a carer (you provide unpaid care support to a person with an illness) - you are a parent carer. You may want to find carer support organisations in your region. In England your GP should register you as a carer and there should be a carer support group in your county; medical professionals should be including you in some aspects of her care (see also triangle of care); your needs should be assessed, etc. A carer support group will be able to provide useful support and information to you.

That method sounds like synthetic phonics. It's a good method.

comment Are there some side effects of letting an infant eat chocolates?
Cool, but I supplied refs and they say very clearly that milk or water are fine, and that undiluted fruit juice is bad, and diluted fruit juice is only ok in limited situations. They also state clearly that the amount of sugar does make a difference, I'm suprised you think it doesn't. Do you have any cites?

comment How to convince an adult son to seek medical help?
@erica - I'm not quite sure what the problem is with these comments. The 1st protects the asker from legal trouble; the second asks if they're in UK (because I can give full answer there). Are they both bad comments?

@erica - sorry. Those comments don't fit as answers, so should I delete them?

Dried fruit is high in sugar and sticky, so that's bad for teeth. Undiluted fruit juice is very high in sugar and is much worse for teeth than milk. And the bottle used for drinks also makes a difference. here's some info about dental hygiene: nhs.uk/Livewell/dentalhealth/Pages/Goodhabitskids.aspx nhs.uk/Livewell/dentalhealth/Pages/Careofkidsteeth.aspx

If you think your son is a danger to himself or to other people you need to investigate the health / law in your area to report that risk to the relevant people. I can provide a lot more information if you live in the UK. The process in the US differs by state.
