Try to avoid giving your Dad money, if at all possible. He has a serious problem and feeding him money will only make it worse. Try to keep your money for yourself, or to help with the bills if needed/if you want to.
I can only imagine what kind of stress your Mom is under. Not only is she worrying about the crazy behaviors your Dad is up to, she has to worry about keeping your whole family a float and making sure that you and your siblings are taken care of. I know it isn't fair for her to scream at you but try not to let it get to you. I'm in a position like her, except with less to worry about and it's hard on me. I can't imagine what it'd be like to have children to worry about. I'm not saying your Mom is justified in her behavior, but holding it against her won't help anything. Sometimes we/you have to take the higher road.
