          Dr. Phil’s Advice To Family In Crisis: ‘It’s Time To Write A New Life Script’


          September 27, 2016

          Grant’s mom, Wendy, claims he has a history of abusing alcohol and women. And, she says, the problems Grant has now started in childhood. “It started out he was fighting with kids, he’d bring a pocket knife to school, he’d threaten kids,” says Wendy, who says she took Grant to see a specialist when he was 8.

          “My mom sent me to foster care because I was out of control,” says Grant who was 9 at the time. Grant acknowledges, he’s always liked chaos in his life. “I like to mess with people.”
