          Family Grudges

          August 27, 2003

          Dr. Phil talks to family members who say they’re ready to move past their disagreements and heal their relationships.

          When Crystal was 6 months old, her mother, Barbara, left her with her grandparents, who ended up raising her. Crystal admits she has held a 29-year grudge against her mom because of this “abandonment.”  Crystal and Barbara agree to speak for the first time in two years.

          When Bob was 11, his parents divorced and his sister, Tina, took on a protective role. Their close relationship was torn apart five years ago when Bob’s fiancé, Kimberly, cheated on him. Bob says Tina has been holding a grudge against his fiancée ever since. They haven’t spoken in almost a year.
