My family (5 adult siblings) just recently found out that my mother is gambling. We have always been suspicious but it was confirmed last week. For the past 5 years, she has borrowed money from each of us, on numerous occasions, to "pay bills" that she didnt have the money for. She claimed bankrupcy about 2 years ago and still borrowed after that. She has lost all pride when asking to borrow and doesnt feel bad when she cant pay it back. My sister confronted her last year about going over her bills/expenses (before it was confirmed she was gambling) and it caused a huge fight between the two of them. we dont how to confront her, or even if we should confront her. She will definately deny it and lie to us and it will end up us not speaking to her. Any advice on how to start the conversation with her to let her know that we are all aware that she has a gambling problem?
