I take care of my mom, but my brother is strangely her favorite. She forgives the fact that he steals openly from her and treats me like garbage. She is handicapped and he refuses to help. I don't understand why this is happening. Please help me. He seems to enjoy being cruel to people. I need encouragement and thanks, not put downs, and stealing. Please help me. He's making my life so much worse than it already is. I don't know how to handle it. Mom won't let me ban him from the house.
