What can you do with a man like this?

I know A young Family with a couple children another one due any day now. They're down on their luck! Unemployed. May lose everything! But one of their Dad's has or had $80,000. He also earns $30.00 per hour! He doesn't help his own family. No insurance etc... Won't pay any bills or help out his kids or Grandchildren! While at the bar with Big bucks. He gave it to someone who was having a hard time building a new house! A complete Stranger? While his son & grand children are going without the basics & food! He spends all of his money, paycheck & what not as the Bar. Then when drinks does not so smart things! Can He be saved? What A waste? His wife allows him to do what ever he pleases...Do you think he'll get his money repaid! Sure is a lot of money! Wish I was in that bar. But I don't go to bars or drink! Any suggestions for this man?

  • All people can do for him is hope n pray for the best. and also for his family that he is unwilling to care for.... As for his addiction of being at the bar you can't make somebody go get counseling if they aren't ready and willing to do so first by themselves....

  • its his own money...he's not obligated to give it to his child. His child should have learned to do better for himself

  • yes he needs AA he will never change unless he gets to detox. i was a nurse in a detox center and let me tell you, i saw a million of guys like this. for one thing his wife needs to step in a say something also. how can she just sit by and watch her children and grandchildren suffer. she is just a guilty as he is. she is enabling this all. speak up sister!!!!!!!!!!!
