  • not necessarily, but you're enabling him because....? it certainly doesn't show her a good example.
    perhaps you need family counseling to learn why you enable him, and how to stop, for both of you(not to mention him, too).

  • If you seriously had to ask this question then you might need to seek some codependency help.

  • Well you're most certainly not setting a good example for her.
