My son is acting more like the parent to his younger half brother

My 22 year old son has a brother from his dad side of the family thats 13. My son does things with him more than his father and the mother. The parents smokes weed most of the time and the mother works part time and only thinks of themselves most of the time and doesnt do anything special with the 13 year old. The 13 year old is a good kid and my son is there for him. The 13 year old has a 18 year old half sister that I believe is heading for self-destruction. Over the past year she changed with not going to school, only want to hang out with her friends and her 21 year old boyfriend, and she is starting to smoke weed and drink. I have always been there for the kids while raising my son, but I think when I stopped parenting them and made the mother to start being the parent, It looks like her daughter went downhill. The parents needs help to raising them, but If I start parenting the kids again, they are going to expect me to do it. The daughter is who I worry about the most. Me and my son been in these kids lives since they were young. The mother re-married but the husband doesn’t seems to be involved in the kids at all.
