          Generation Lazy?

          June 12, 2012

          Are today’s kids more entitled than in past generations? With research showing that most college graduates are returning home to live with mom and dad, many appear to be earning a degree in laziness! Dr. Phil talks to two mothers who say their grown children are freeloaders who won’t let them cut the cord. Can Dr. Phil get them motivated?

          A Scamming Son?
          Dorothy says her 27-year-old son, Johnnie, is a lazy college dropout who has scammed her out of thousands of dollars and keeps coming back for more. Johnnie says he would rather travel the world than hold down a steady job or get a degree. Can Dr. Phil inspire mother or son — or both — to change?

          “We always caved in. We created a monster.”

          More than 16 million kids in the United States are at risk for hunger each day. Fortunately, you can help. Visit Feeding America to find your local food bank. And, help Dr. Phil raise enough money for 10 million meals. Donate today!

          Entitled or Enabled?
          Johnnie’s older sister, Kristin, says her mother is enabling her brother, and her mother enjoys the drama that ensues. But does Dorothy agree?

          “Money doesn’t grow on trees.”

          An Ultimatum
          Maria says she still takes care of her 24-year-old daughter, Alexis, a college graduate, as if she were 12 years old, and she’s tired of it. She’s giving Alexis eight months to find her own place — or else.

          “I want her to get her own life.”
