Social Dilemma: I Don't Want My Brother Moving In With Me

Today's 98.3 TRY Social Dilemma came from Tony and it's about family. Here's his email: Hi Jaime. I'm having family drama. My brother is looking for a place to stay as he tries to reinvent his life, and I want no part of it. Short story long, my parents kicked my brother out a decade ago after they learned that he’d stolen a substantial amount of money from them, and did some other things that took my parents years to recover from. Now, ten years later, he’s been calling them and talking about finding religion, apologizing, and wanting a second chance. That’s great for him, but now my folks want me to let him move in with me and my family to help him get back on his feet. I’m thinking that if it means that much to them, then they should be the ones that take him in. I’m just not willing to take the chance on finding out if he’s really changed. And I don't want my wife and little kids in the middle of this. Am I out of line here? How can I make my parents understand that this one’s on them, and it has no business being on my shoulders? Thanks for the help ~ Tony. I'm with Tony on this. I think it's important to be there for family, but not at the risk of yourself or others. It's not Tony's responsibility to take care of his brother in that way. He can help out, maybe work to help find him a job, but taking him in when he's got a family of his own seems like too much to me. What do you think? Would you take in your brother? Let's help Tony out and let me know on the TRY Facebook page.
