I understand. I think in situations like this the doctors should realize they have a greater responsibility to discuss things not only with the parents, but with brothers and sisters who are more educated and sophisticated and better able to understand and help the situation.
Its unfortunate if your parents feel embarrassed or ashamed, and they need to know that this is an illness which is not their fault nor your brothers. And sadly, you are describing a seriously abusive father, abusive towards his children, physically and psychologically, and maybe also towards his wife.
