My sister

My sister is 19, she is living with a 38 year old, he is a 4 time convicted felon, for guns and stealing. She lives in a camper in a travel park, no job, no car, no money. She will not talk or listen to me or anyone else we are so worried about her. What would you do?

  • Let her know I care...then let her make her own choices. She is more likely to come home when things turn out badly if she doesn't feel like "I told you so" will be said.

  • Just leave it alone. There is nothing that you can do about it except for creating animosity between the two of you. The more you push the more she will push back. Sounds like he is a looser but all you can do is pray that she opens her eyes and wakes up.

  • Are there drugs involved. If she does not want help there is probably nothing you can do..

  • I'd let her know that she's welcome to come "home" but then back off. She's an adult.

  • All you can do is let her know that you are there no matter what she needs. Some decisions, and mistakes, just have to be made on their own. There really isn't a whole lot you can do, until she is ready to let someone help her. Best of luck. God bless!

  • support her and let her know you are there for her...she is still a baby and needs to know that she has you in case she needs you...
