So recently my eldest son has been interested in anime including naruto and my hero academia. He had recently become obsessed with the naruto character Sakura Haruno. He's been watching videos and cosplays of her online, searching things up about her and keeps talking about her to me. He now also wants to cosplay as her.
Does anybody know how to tell him to calm down about his obsession without offending him.
Why do you want him to 'calm down about his obsession'? Is it hurting anyone?
Not really he's going to college in a few months And I want him to focus on getting ready due to it being a big transition.
Maybe concentrate positively on trying to get him to do that, rather than negatively on trying to get him to not do the anime things, if you see what I mean. (Purely speculative idea which I haven't tried.) Trying to encourage a negative is almost as hard as trying to prove one. Not doing something you enjoy isn't, in itself, something it's exactly easy to get enthusiastic about.
