Cindy and Jim say they are fed up with their 35-year-old son, Brandon. They say he’s a lazy moocher who refuses to get a job and has spray painted everything from the toilet seat to the light switches in their house, causing $15,000 of damage. They also say he likes to dress up like his favorite superhero and go on nighttime vigilante missions.
“It’s exhausting living with him, and it wasn’t always like that,” Cindy tells Dr. Phil on Friday’s episode.
