He is 17 and quite emotionally and physically manipulative and violent - going so far as to significantly injure members of my family in the past.
He shows almost no respect for my parents, sisters and myself and has shunned religion - refusing to come to Mass with us, refusing to pray with us and not respecting the family's Catholic faith.
His behaviour is tearing my family apart. I ask you to please keep him in your prayers. Each day I hope that he will realise how much we are suffering and decide to try and change, but it never happens.
