This is about a You Tuber named Mike Martin that is being accused of abusing and exploiting his children for profit.  I first learn about him thru You Tube news commentator Philip DeFranco, he did a series of 3 disturbing videos.  Here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvoLmsXKkYM&t=550s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mrilDQugeME https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jfpzCsXGxQg The abuse seems to be focused on son Cody, which includes dad punching him, shoving him into a bookshelf, injuring him, and stepmom cussing and screaming at him. They even excluded him from a recent family vacation to Disneyland.  I think they need intervention fast.  They had all of these videos uploaded on their YouTube, daddyofive and a couple on another one mommyofive, they have since deleted many and set their page to private, however many people were able to save these videos.  The videos I saw are shocking and I was heartbroken to see these kids in such distress.  Pranks should not leave children sobbing and fearful.

I don't know how to get my point across I'm just wanting to leave Dr. Phil a message, I have a hard time understanding why when he's talking to people he's looking at the floor not having eye contact with people that is so important when you talk to somebody look them in the eyes. Dr. Phil I have the upmost respect for you I love your show I watch it all the time but it is really bothering me that you look at the floor.. I hope you get this message, thank you for everything and God bless you and your family

I recently watch the show of the young lady who was born into sex trafficking, and if absolutely broke my heart.  I just wanted to hold the young lady and tell her everything will be okay,  and I'm so sorry for what she has had to go through.   Please keep us updated on how she is doing,  and also is she going to help the police catch these nasty, disgusting, murderous child pedophiles..  It made me sick to my stomach hearing how lowlife  POS get away with this kind of crime..Even the police are involved with this scum.. I pray this young woman gets all the help she needs.

I haven't ever posted my opinion before with regard to Dr Phil's treatment recommendations, but I wanted to say something regarding the second half of today's show. The woman who appeared with anxiety and panic attacks in regards to her fear of germs.  

My daughter, age 23 suffers from the same fears, along with the woman's son's fear of vomiting, called emitaphobia. My daughters anxiety could very well be genetic, but I believe that certain traumatic events play a big role on her fears. My daughter has been treated with  counseling and is on medication.  Shenis going much better and is able go lead a normal life   

Having said all that, the advice and result that Dr Phil prescribed just didn't seem right. He was so focused on her doing away with getting rid of germs and being exposed to the outside and dirt builds immunity and if she just realized that and embraced it, she would get better. 


I hope that Dr Phil prescribed some type of psychotherapy for that women to face her fears and any past trauma or upsetting event in her life.  

Thank you for reading, Respectfully,  Sandra

I really love your show. I've watched since you were on Oprah.  Recently I see that your family has taken up different endeavors which seem to have become quite successful. Examples: Dr. on Demand, Robin's skin care line, etc.  

My issue is with the 15 minute infomercials that are thrown in at the end of the show.  It is REALLY a turn off and for a quite a while I stopped even watching..It seems w/all your success, you must have a healthy income and are quite well off...Can't Robin afford to pay to hawk her stuff on QVC or some such similar outlet.  Many feel you're contaminating your show by throwing this stuff in at the end.  I actually just turn off once I see you're going that route again near the end of a show.  

In closing, respectfully I know you have helped many people and I think that is great. You have contributed much to humanity by doing so and I applaud all you have done.  Please try to keep the show pure and intact for those of us who watch to learn about issues that are important in today's society. Don't push that tacky commercial stuff down our throats.  


thanks....


Malli

I wouldn't do it.  it sounds like he wants a mommy or parent to "take care of him" .  Guard your privacy and your life. Letting someone move in is a BIG committment and could forever change ur relationship w/ that person.  Good fences makes good neighbors which is a good way of viewing it.  He is looking for an enabler..Don't do it..Just my advice..Good luck

I have been having a difficult time at home and googled some of my concerns the term Gaslighting came up.


Does anyone have any experiance with this type of thing is it called something else today ? is that the reason we dont hear the term anymore?
