  1. Love how Dave thinks just cuz you go to church it makes you a better person, like clergies and priest are not stealing money from the idiots who give “tithes” 😂😂😂🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️

  2. Why is the daughter taking on the task of parenting her brother? Sometimes it takes MEMORABLE PAIN for this young man's life to go forward! He needs to GROW UP! Yes, he can be steered in the right direction with education, work, etc. YOU CAN LEAD A HORSE TO WATER BUT YOU CAN'T MAKE HIM DRINK. This may be HIS life-changing moment. I vote for letting him sit in "time out" and maybe he will make his own plan. No rescue at the end though. He's on his own.

  3. 18 is young. People make mistakes. Shoplifting is not serious but it could close some doors for him. No parent would want that. Ramsey does not sound like a parent at times. Sounds like he has had a privileged life.

  4. No! Do NOT bail him out! Never bail anyone out unless you want to enable him and make him believe someone will always be there to bail him out. Besides which, you will never get your money back. Let him admit his guilt if he is guilty. Sounds like the parents have good reasons for not wanting to bail him out.

  5. When I was 18 I was a lazy drifting high school drop out. My parents asked me if I wanted to go live with my brother half way across the USA ? I said sure. Thinking it was a vacation. First day I arrived my brother made me fill out 15 applications. Second day 15 more applications. Guess what. I got a job and have been a tax payer ever since.

  6. Leave him there because the police have services to help addicts and if he goes through the system he may even get court ordered to comply with services. At 18, he needs a wake up call

  7. They call that "enabling." Yeah, his lawyer says it's "not the best option," because he's looking for the short term solution. The long term, however, needs to be this kid getting some direction, a career, & some initiative & drive! Right now, he's just lost… (and potentially stupid).
