I want to help a neighbor I liked but don't know how. He has a son  who started using drugs when his brother, who he was very close to died. Since he's got no job he stole and sold household items. His mother to stop him from stealing started giving a little bit of money. When she realized that she was enabling him, she stopped giving him any money. That's when he started issuing the threats I mentioned. He'd ask for money and if you she didn't give it, he'd tell her he was going to kill himself and he actually did attempt to kill himself at one time. How can you help such a kid?
