          Dr. Phil Family Returns: Alexandra's Resentment

          February 01, 2010

          Alex is in the midst of a divorce, fighting custody battles for her 6-yr-old son and 2-year-old daughter, and living with her new boyfriend, Tony. Dr. Phil sits down with her to talk about her choices in men, making ends meet, and her desire to be a mom. And, Alex confronts her mother about the resentment she’s harbored for the last few years that stems from a painful incident from the past. Then Erin reveals information about her childhood that may explain her behavior and opens up about the state of her marriage. She’s feeling lonely and shares her struggle with Dr. Phil. 


          Get caught up with the Dr. Phil Family.

          • “I spend about seven hours of my week in either therapy, parenting class, mental health class, or domestic violence prevention class. During these classes, I will have to say I have really learned a lot about myself and about how to handle events I now know I was not handling the right way.”
          • “I am not very good at sugarcoating things. I call people out. I am quite good at backing someone into a corner and making that person feel completely offended and inadequate. I finally have come to the realization this may help me feel better for a few moments, at the great expense of my relationship with the person.”

          Dr. Phil responds to viewers’ criticism of the Dr. Phil Family and shares why he’s not giving up on them.
