When it comes to discipline in the classroom, where should the line be drawn? Dr. Phil continues his discussion about the use of restraints in school, and he talks to parents who say their son came home with bruises. Joining him is Areva Martin, civil and family attorney and author of The Everyday Advocate.


To Restrain or Not Restrain?

Are physical restraint techniques needed in the classroom, or are there alternative methods to handle unruly children? Dr. Phil and his guests debate the issue. Plus, meet a woman who says she was concerned when her autistic son came home from school with bruises.


"I think it's appalling."

Can Jessica get the best treatment for Aiden and also keep her marriage intact?
