I just received a heartbreaking phone call from my mother about the situation back home. I can’t think of anyone else to talk to or tell my story.
Basically my 21 year old brother still lives at home with my parents. He dropped out of college. He has a low paying movie theatre job, but that’s all. My parents pay for his car and all the bills. He contributes zero money in return. He also has a 17 year old girlfriend who has an extremely troubled home life. She spends most of her time with him at my parents house.
Today, my mother and brother were verbally fighting over his behavior. He suddenly breaks a lamp in the house. My mother gets mad and throws a lamp at him. Next thing, I’m told…he spits on her. Yes…he spit on my mother. She calls the police. They talk to him long and hard.
In the end, my mother didn’t press charges. Personally I’m ready to kill my brother, but she has begged me not to. My mother can’t stand the thought of him in a jail cell, but I say it is necessary.
I have no one else to talk too about any of this. I’m not saying that anyone out there has had the same situation happen; I’m just looking for some advice.
God bless those who respond.
