we had a tragic incident in our family in 2007 with the suicide of our 14yr old little brother. me & my sister are the oldest in our family we're 28 so we have to pick up the crap that goes on, anyways he couldnt deal with the loss & got into drugs & did a year in the adult dept of juvenile corrections. when he got out last may he chose for me & my sister to raise him. we are more than happy to. but we both have families of our own which we still always put our brother first but lately he has been sneaking out of the house or he just isnt home when my sister gets home from work & she calls me. hes on parole. i told her we need to talk to his parole officer because eventhough he is really a good kid hes clean & sober now, he just isnt listening to us for some reason. my sister told him she will send him to a family who litterally doesnt give a shit about him then the dramatics start. we grounded him but he still left the house. what should we do about this? its hard to be the sisters & the parent at the same time!!
