Grandpa Returns: The Aftermath

May 21, 2008

In a dramatic two-day series, Dr. Phil investigated allegations of child sexual abuse with a grandfather, his daughter and his grandson. Sherie-Lynn's 12-year-old son, Parker, was expelled from school for sexually assaulting other children. Sherie-Lynn suspected that Parker was molested at some point, and she believes her father, Al, was the perpetrator because he molested her when she was a child. Catch up on what you missed in "A Boy in Trouble" and "Confronting Grandpa".

 

 

A Weight Lifted

Al maintained his innocence of the sexual abuse allegations toward his grandson, despite polygraph results that implied otherwise. See what happened with this family immediately after the last show. 

 

How are Sherie-Lynn and Parker now? 

 


 

Face to Face

Sherie-Lynn faces her father for the first time since his polygraph results indicated deception. Her mother, Elaine, believes Sherie-Lynn and the polygraph results, so why is she still living with Al? Plus, Al asks for forgiveness. 

 

"I made a mistake, a very serious mistake." 

 


 

A Marriage on the Edge

Sherie-Lynn's husband, Todd, say he's having a hard time dealing with his wife's past. After their fights became verbally abusive, Sherie-Lynn kicked Todd out. Now the couple lives apart and hasn't spoken in almost two weeks.

 

"There would need to be some significant changes for me to stay in this marriage." 

 


 

Help Is on the Way

"Dysfunction is not a big enough word to describe all of the dynamics going on in this family right now," Dr. Phil tells them. Elaine wants to know if she should move out. Sherie-Lynn wonders if she should divorce, and what is next for Parker?

 

Dr. Phil tells them what he thinks.
