Family squabbles are hard to avoid â€”- especially during the holidays â€”- but what happens when that behavior escalates to cursing, yelling and even physical attacks? Dr. Phil sits down with a family on the brink of falling apart.
A Drama King?
Loretta says she’s tired of the constant drama in her household, and she blames her husband, Devin. She says he’s selfish and verbally abuses their 18-year-old twin daughters, Ashley and Amy. Devin says he’s the innocent one and his wife and daughters are disrespectful.
Amy and Ashley say their father neglects them while treating their 4-year-old brother, Tyler, like royalty. Devin says his daughters are the ones who turned away.
Caught on Tape
A few years ago, Devin videotaped Amy when she came home drunk to teach her a lesson. How does she react when she sees the footage in its entirety? Plus, Loretta says if Devin doesn’t change his behavior, then she’s ready to kick him to the curb.
