Alright... in appreciation for what you (asylum) do... i'll try and keep this as short as possible. My parents had a talk with me the other day regarding my sister because they don't know what to do. You see, my sister was a good girl (or at least she let everyone think she is) and was honest and responsible. She had a great/respectful BF at the time. THen she broke up with him. Fast forward to recently... now my sister is irresponsible, lies like hell and stays out later than i do (i'm 22 with a full time job... shes 17). I find out that she's seeing this 21 year old guy, and thus stems all of the problems. She's been ditching class AND work to see this guy. She'll tell everyone shes going to so and so's house and really go somewhere else with this guy. She's started drinking also and man she's just been a little idiot these days. My cousin sees her and this new BF at the mall one day (when she said she was working) and from my cousin's description... this guy looks like a low life thug. My parents tried talkin to her about it and even inviting the guy over so we can meet him... but she just doesn't listen and refuses everything my parents say. So now my parents are askin me for help cuz they don't know what to do.... I understand that sometimes you have to experience mistakes in order to learn from them... but this just seems like one of those instances where intervention is needed.
