All of the guests on today's show have one thing in common: They all have a bone to pick with Dr. Phil!
The show "Living with the War, Part 2" generated a flood of viewer feedback. While most of it was positive, some questioned why Dr. Phil had those "damn demonstrators" on the show. Others thought Dr. Phil was pro war, with one even calling him a "Texas bonehead."
Dr. Phil answers viewer feedback questions.
Dr. Phil a Sexist?
Mary calls Dr. Phil a "sexist" for comments she thought he made on "The Other Woman" show. Did Dr. Phil really say that it's the woman's fault if her husband cheats?
In "How to Talk to Your Kids About..." Dr. Phil said he does not endorse children sleeping in the same bed with their parents. Judy, a mother of three, thinks Dr. Phil's advice was "ridiculous!"
When Dr. Phil told a mother to stop letting her 5-year-old boy play with girl toys on "Ask Dr. Phil," Darnell wrote in saying that doing so would hurt the boy and send him a wrong message.
Jeers of a Clown
Kathy, a professional clown, was infuriated after watching "How to Talk to Your Kids About..." "You told a little boy that he needed to get a good education so he didn't wind up with a 'bad' job, like 'the man in the duck suit outside the pet store.'"
Teens and Sex
Did Dr. Phil let boys off the hook in a show about teens and sex? One mom thinks so.
