I wasn't sure which forum to address, hope this is the correct one for my problem. My younger Brother has been a good kid other than the fact- he is a liar and steals money. He used to lie even as a kid, his entire childhood my parents have tried everything yelling, talking to him, punishing etc etc but no change in his behavior. When he was in the age group 20-23 he stole money from my parents (around 700$ ) and also took lot of money from me now and then of course he lied about reasons he wanted it for. When confronted about stealing he always had some good reason. We together as a family helped him get out of his debts and money problem with the assurance that it was mistake on his part and he should be given a chance. But now after 5 years he was at our parents home for a little vacation he again stole money form my father, about 600$ . (He have visited them a lot of time in last 5 years but no such incident took place). He never is in any steady job and we have no idea if he gets paid enough. The problem is he never speaks the truth. We have tried talking sense in him but he admits his mistake and apologizes whenever caught. I am not sure if it is a problem with him or its just that his needs are more than his pocket can afford. I really want to help my brother to come out of whatever it is, please suggest as what should I do?
