My dad and my brother do not get on at all ever since he walked out on my mum. He never seems to help cause he is always on the other end of the phone and never there helping out. My mum is a very proud woman and i dont think she would ever go to a counselor. The thing is he does all this stuff to her but she still lets him come back, this afternoon he came back home for a shower (or to wipe the box he took the rings out of)!! Everytime i advise my mum to not let him back in she says he is always her son. I think she needs to keep him out untill he comes back begging. I'm just so stressed out about it and my partner seems to be giving me no support saying other things are more important.
