They do change everything! You're doing the best you can for them by giving them unconditional love and welcoming them into your home. You can help them set a good foundation.

When you enable your DS, you're teaching the kids that his behavior is acceptable, and that you exist just to be used.

When you stop enabling DS, but you continue to love him and give him emotional encouragement, you'll teach them responsibility. That's the best you can do.

Eventually, the kids will be big enough to make decisions, and that's when you'll see what impact you've had with them.
