Dr. Phil continues his discussion with Jennifer
, who has been fighting her parents, Anne and Charles, for custody of her 6-year-old daughter. Jennifer also claims her parents have “poisoned” her 18-year-old daughter, Sarah, and 20-year-old son, Josh, against her — which her parents deny.
Anne and Charles say their daughter is irresponsible and incapable of being a good mother, and she needs help getting her life back on track. They also say they question whether Jennifer is abusing prescription pills — an accusation Jennifer absolutely denies. Jennifer even offers to take a drug test — what will the results reveal?
And, hear from Josh, who “excommunicated” Jennifer years ago. Who does he believe should raise his little sister? Plus, don’t miss the backstage showdown between Jennifer and her family! Can everyone pull together in this time of crisis? Catch up on what you missed in Part 1!

Jennifer’s son, Josh, says he cut his mother out of his life two years ago. “I realized all the lies and all the crap added up, and I started to see she wasn’t really trying to get better,” he says.
“When my mother said my grandparents ‘fraudulently’ gained custody of my sister, I feel that’s completely untrue,” Josh continues. “I believe my little sister is in danger with my mother, because she has been seen out at three in the morning, in her car seat, still up. [My mother] is incapable of being a parent because of her drug use and lack of resources, honestly.”
“She’s just pointing the finger at everyone else.”
“My behavior has been wrong and bad — I admit that — but not like they’re painting it here.”
