Latest Entry: Children need counseling also
After watching the conclusion of the Sandra soga play out yesterday (May 24, 2016)... I am remind that many times the children are left out of the therapy process.

While I fully agree that in order for a family to begin functioning normally that parents should receive the first line of resources to keep from further damaging the family unit,--however, there is no doubt that in some cases where mental, emotional, and possible physical trauma has taken place already, children are going to need professional help (in my humble opinion as a psychology student) for many reasons.  Such as breaking the cycle, learning positive coping life strategies (that obviously their parent(s) lack) and as a way to release grudges or come to closure with past experiences.  

Sandra states that her children are "lying" and if they did who would be surprised, I know I would not.  They have lived the majority of their lives with their mother who hasn't been the best role model by a long shot.  If we do not help the kids, we are only setting them and ourselves up for failure, and preparing them for Dr. Phil's next episode some decades down the road. 

And to be honest with you, I feel like the kids would be more willing to participate and get more out of counseling and therapy than Sandra (due to other "issues") she has going on inside of her.

Latest Entry: Sandra's children
I am COMPLETLEY terrified for her children and disgusted by her behavior, she is SEVERE denial of her clear MENTAL ILLNESS !!! I trust that Dr. Phil is proactively taking EVERY step necessary to protect the welfare of those children!! This is the worst case I've seen of emotional and psychological abuse being inflicted on children.. Based on her own denial and behavior displayed on the show it's not apparent she can even be helped!  I was literally in tears about the future of those children and their needs .. I really want to know an update of how this turns out, those kids truly should not be around her for another moment she needs court ordered mental health treatment and close observation to ensure she is compliant with no visitation or communication with those children until a clinical professional has authorized monitored visits - this is not a judgment of her as a BAD mom -- this is a dangerous scenario and that woman must get help ...

     I hate to say it, but Sandra is one of the most dishonest people I have ever seen on any talk show, and I have watched thousands of them.  If she were really honest, she would not have to tell people how honest she is.  Her protestation of honesty were shallow indeed!

     She said she wanted the truth to come out, but sabotaged every attempt made to bring it out.  Joey took the lie detector, and passed.  The neighbor, Linda, contacted the show to get help for them.  Sandra did not really want help. She stonewaled at every turn, refusing to even the test.

     The irony is the truth came out more through Sandra's actions than anything else.  By making a fool of herself on national television, she revealed her own character.  How sad for her children!

Today's Show May 23, 2016- This lady is doing so much harm to her two daughters and her ex- husband Joey. She needs some help and these girls are going to need help with what she is putting them through. I cannot believe how she keeps interrupting Dr. Phil and does not hear what he is saying to her. If I were Joey I would be taking her to court to get the girls away from her. What is wrong with parents now a days. I don't understand all their excuses. When you become a parent your children should always come first and it doesn't stop when their 18. Other wise don't have children. People now have options that people my age didn'. Stop being selfish and use them before you bring a child in to this world that you are not going to love and take care of.

Latest Entry: Five interior design trends to be aware of
Now that warmer weather is here, many homeowners are turning their attention towards home improvement and interior design projects. If it's time for an upgrade or a new look here are five interior design trends that you'll want to be aware of.

Design for social connection

In today's technologically driven world, you don't want your home to be just another place where everyone is glued to a screen, either a big one or a small one. Your home should be a haven where friends and family can reconnect and really engage with each other. With that goal in mind, go about decorating in such a way that social interaction is fostered. You can encourage interaction by arranging your furniture so that people are facing each other. Group furniture into conversation zones. Most importantly, don't make a big-screen TV the focal point of a larger room. TVs should be banished to smaller rooms or you may consider hiding them in an entertainment center that has doors that can cover the TV.

Get outside

Keeping the previous trend in mind, you can encourage more social interaction by creating a nicer outdoor living space where people can congregate. Try to blur the lines between indoors and outdoors by making your back deck as comfortable as possible. Make sure there's plenty of lighting so that social gatherings can go into the night. A great backyard deck will add a lot of value to your home as well.

Go natural

A popular design trend today is a classic, modern style than emphasizes white, neutral tones and light wood in its natural state. The good thing about this trend is that it's DIY friendly. To get the natural look, you don't want to stain the wood so all you need to be able to do is some light sanding and the ability to apply a clear coat of sealant. A white space with unstained wood creates a tranquil, stress-free environment.

Less is more

Everyone's heard the saying, "less is more" and it definitely applies to interior design. A mistake many homeowners make is trying to do too much with a space. If you try to do too much, the space can appear cluttered. You want the interesting features of your home to really stand out so you don't want to fill it with too many things that will only serve as distractions. Adopt a minimalistic approach and you'll be surprised at the results.

Don't play it safe

One of the most common mistakes homeowners make is playing it safe. If you're remodeling to sell then you can try to go with all the safest options because that's what's going to appeal to the widest number of people. But assuming you're redecorating for yourself, don't be afraid to be bold and make decisions that you wouldn't normally make. Be creative. Go with bright colors. Create an accent wall. Choose interesting pieces that you ordinarily wouldn't.

Latest Entry: Need Help
Hello Dr. Phil Viewers.  

I am not sure if I am doing this correctly as I do not have any social media accounts and I need some help.  I think my sister is getting scammed by a type of man that Dr. Phil has discussed on his show.  My sister has been speaking to this individual named James (I do not know his last name) and he keeps saying he will come to Texas (this is where she resides) but when it is time for him to show up, he does not.  He tells her he has a 14 year old daughter and he is rich.  One time he was working in Nigeria, then in London and now he is in Dubai.  It seems suspicious to me.  

It seems it is the same pattern that were on the show and I do not know how I can verify information when I do not have a lot of information to begin with in the first place.   Is there a website where I can post his picture to find out information?  I think he is scamming my sister and this has been going on for five years.  I am hoping I can find some information to show her that this individual is not who he says he is.  If anyone is able to help me, please let me know it is greatly appreciated.
