          Ask the Bishop

          July 08, 2009

          In these difficult economic times, many Americans are asking, “Will I find a job? Can I support my family? Will my savings survive?” Dr. Phil is joined by Bishop T.D. Jakes, best-selling author and leader of one of the fastest-growing mega-churches in the U.S., to answer your questions and share strategies for staying motivated during this time of uncertainty.

          Entitled Child?
          Susan says her 19-year-old daughter, Emily, is living in a fantasyland and refuses to grow up and get a job. She says Emily plays video games most of the day, sleeps late and has no motivation. Emily says she’s not lazy, just laid-back.

          Does Emily hear the wake-up call like her mother hopes?

          Proud to Be a Control Freak
          Lisa is a wife, mom and self-proclaimed domestic dictator who says it’s her way or no way. She says she has to be in charge of everything and everyone, especially her husband, Jason.

          Lisa receives a surprise visit from the Bishop.

          An Important Message
          The Bishop talks one on one with Jason. How does Lisa respond when she observes their conversation? And, find out what Lisa’s teen daughters have to say about their mother’s behavior.

          Will the messages from Lisa’s family inspire her to change?

          Engaged and Unhappy
          Jennifer says she has to wear the pants in the family, and she resents her fiancé, James. He says Jennifer’s constant pushing makes him feel like less of a man.

          Can Dr. Phil and the Bishop help get their relationship back on track?
