    In a situation where a loved one is influenced by the people in the neighborhood, what is the best suggestion? Does the family relocate for the sake of one person or move the person who is being influenced by the neighborhood.

    This is in relation to dangerous and uncontrolled communities that have negative influence on youths.

    I think it could help to move out of a bad area. It would just depend on a lot of factors -age, addictions, family support, etc.

    Sadly, in many cases, geography does not fix the underlying problems. There are bad influences to be found even in good communities. Some will seek out and find these where ever they are.
