I am having an issue that I have noticed come to light with in my family. It seems as though my older brother and older sister, who both have great jobs, have been using my parents' money they are on a fixed income. My sister has some severe financial troubles herself, and when she was staying with my parents they trusted her with paying their bills, and my mother even trusted her with her debit card. Well bills started coming in with late fees and that they had not been paid, so a red flag went up and i checked my parents' account only to find that she had spent 1100 dollars of theirs, with no intention of paying it back, her and my brother both have ran up credit cards of my parents'. They come to my parents when they need to borrow money, then it is leaving me to take care of my parents when they get to a point during the month that they have no money at all. I am trying to figure out how to be diplomatic about the situation in telling the siblings that the free ride is done, and telling my mother to quit enabling these two, not my father she goes behind his back and gives them money. When the older bro got money dad and i checked his account and found that if he hadn't spent 400 on a phone and over 300 in other no essentials that he would have had more than enough money to last him the rest of the week until his pay day. I just want them to leave my parents' money alone, they need it, they are not going to live forever and we will need additional funds to take care of them, especially since our dad has cancer. Please help
