Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

My brother was arrested this morning.

He has a pill problem, and he has been stealing from my grandparents for a while. They are wealthy, but that is no excuse to steal!! My mom is hysterical and begging everyone for money to bail him out. I am SO GLAD I live 500 miles away and am not around this crap.

I hate those criminals who have parents who bail them out immediately as soon as they get caught. I hope my DS knows, his ass will stay there is he ever gets in trouble. I want him to regret it with everything in him.

Hopefully this will get him straight. He has been on this path for about 5 years now and he is only 22. It hurts me bad to know what he is going through, but he got himself in this situation, not me.

Your mom needs help too. It's probably the best place for him. I know it's hard but he needs help. I am sorry.

Getting caught is often the only thing that will make someone get help for an addiction.

I wouldn't bail him out. He needs to face the consequences of his actions.

Your Mom needs to let him sit. Hopefully she does. He needs help. Maybe he will think about it if he has to sit in jail. If she keeps bailing him out, his drug use will most likely get worse and he could end up dead. 

I really hope he gets the helps he needs. I'm sorry your family is going through this.

Sounds like my brother. Bailing him out will only make him think he can get away with this kind of crap. I'm sorry op.

Don't bail him out, he'll just continue to do it. My brother was the same way, he's in prision now for breaking and entering. My mom and grandparents use to bail him out of everything. Made it way to easy for him.
