If he has a "bad temper" he needs to get it under control before he is ever successful in any of his relationships or life. Your parents should want to help him, but it sounds as if they are enabling him. However, you don't have to enable him. If you can come up with the means, move out! Or if that is not possible avoid your brother and ignore him. Don't give him the time of day! Tell him that you care about him, but you are now letting go of his outragious behavior and refuse to be part of it. In otherwords from your perspective, the best help should be "no help".
