I was very disturbed by an episode I watched today on Dr.Phil. some boys held down a minor and tattooed his butt. The bullies lack of remorse and demeanor made me sick. The bullies mother's body language her facial expressions and what she said on the show clearly showed that she didn't understand the severity of what her son did. It made me sick!! Our children look up to us parents for guidance and examples. I wanted to punch them both through the TV. I felt so sad for the child this happened to. The bully and his mother showed absolutely no remorseremorse. I could go on forever it made me sick.

The show yesterday was a God send. We are having the same problems with my step-son. It even came down too where he went into drugs and much more destructive behavior. The last draw was when 6 cops showed up at our home due to what he had done and my husband and I's marriage was at its end. We tried everything we thought would work for him and it came to no avail. 

Thank you, Dr. Phil for airing this show!

My favorite shows are about marriage, communication and how to negotiate with your spouse.  I would love to see a show about men (and women) who check out of their marriage and have Dr. Phil help them to check back in!

My fav. Exposed is:  the blond wife that told her husband what to do..about everything.  And, he would obey!  LOL

I love Dr Phil soo much that I watch it on any channel I can get him on. Today 1/16/15 I as I do every week day watched him on OWN. I can watch about 5 or 6 episodes one right after another. It is great.  In cold blood: A Daughter murdered Part 1 was on but not part 2. I have read the book and I live in Indiana. I have not seen it on ID discovery either but would love to. Can you let me know when part 2 will be on on OWN.? Jan Whittenburg

The episode with the so called sugar babies drove me crazy!  Partly because they are teaching men and women both  that the best way for her to make money is to sell her body. But also because of what she is missing out on. Empowerment and self reliance are a high. I do not know enough to decide if I thought they were afraid of learning to stand on their own two feet or merely too lazy, but I our society was poorer because of the effect ther chosen lifestyle

I am so sorry for your loss. The truth is that you didn't end his life, he ended his life. You made the best choices you could at the time but he didn't die because you didn't answer the phone he died because he was an alcoholic and  DID NOT deal with his alcoholism in a way that would have allowed him to live. 

Everytime you think about punishing yourself for his death, instead think of how many people across the country are sitting in an AA meetings. Some cities have AA meeting around the clock.

Currently, my favorite was part one of the episode with the paranoid husband who was convinced his wife was cheating on him, and alienated their 12-year-old from his mother.

Don't get me wrong. I spent the vast majority of that episode with my mouth hanging open in outrage and disbelief. But there was one moment in that episode that made it all worth it (paraphrased from memory):

"Are you telling me, that [in that tape] you're not telling [your son], 'Man, I got her! I got her, man, she's going down! I've got the test results and the letter, I've got the proof right here!' THIS letter! RIGHT HERE! Which says you didn't take the damn test!"

I firmly believe that it is wrong to mock somebody who is suffering from delusions. I firmly believe that "mentally ill" should not be an insult, and I really hate that it's taken that way by the public. I really respect the fact that Dr. Phil offered the guy help at the end, and I respect the guy for taking it. But I still laughed at that moment, which I know is really hypocritical (especially for me), but at that moment in the episode, I'd just wanted to reach through the screen and pound some sense of logic into the guy's head.
