We have 4 children. My husband is on a downward spiral with serious legal issues, lying, integrity,in denial and emotional abusing me and our oldest son. Our 23 year old younger son is a recovered addict, relapsed 4 months ago, in recovery, but refuses to do any chores, makes a mess and will not seek employment. I know that due to my husband's issues, he has ceased "parenting up" and refuses counseling. Besides throwing my son's stuff in his room every day, is there any other advice out there ? I am also struggling with auto immune illnesses and our 17 year old daughter is lashing out at me. Our older son is respectful, kind, helps out a lot as does our mature, 19 year old daughter but they are frustrated and angry. I am beginning to research legal seperation as well. Thanks!
