Harv and Lynne say their 41-year-old son, Mark, is an adolescent living in an adult man’s body. They say Mark can’t support himself, is currently living in his car in a big box store parking lot, and was a driver for a rideshare program until he got into multiple accidents and his car suffered damage.TELL DR.

“We have been helping Mark. We helped him pay off two of his credit cards, phone bills, electrical bills, attorney fees. We’ve given him several cars,” says Lynne, who admits they’ve given Mark about $40,000 in the last 20 years. “I used to send Mark care packages with food and cookies, but now, there’s no address to send it to.”
Harv says, “My wife and I have different opinions about helping Mark. I’m more of a hardliner. He knows that Mom is the money tree.”WATCH: ‘I Call It Urban Camping,’ Says Man Living In His Car
