How to help without enabling, and what type of behaviours ar

Unread postby Waltwinch » 02 Aug 2012

I need to know how to be there for my brother without enabling self-indulgent self-destructive behaviours.
Also, how can I tell what type of behaviours I just have to accept in my 54 year old male paranoid schizophrenic
brother. I love hime dearly and do not want to harm him in any way.
