We live with my parents while our house is being built. My mom invited my brother to come stay for a few days because he is going through a rough time. He recently became estranged from his kids and wife after apparently assaulting his wife. Restraining order against him. He is adopted and has FAE (the more functional FAS) and has always struggled with addictions. Currently using alcohol although denies hes had cocaine for a month.
My mom is more concerned with property being stolen. I am more concerned with our physical well-being. I don't want the kids around an active addict- even for four days. I worry about him getting into situations with drug dealers (my parents have bailed him out at least once before from drug debt when his safety was threatened) and his own unpredictability. I told my mom she needs to have a plan in place for when he comes home drunk and she agreed to tell him he would have to go if this happens.
I am freaking out a little. So is my husband. Just wondering if you would be too. Maybe we should stay somewhere else for a few days.
