Dr. Phil continues his conversation with Jason, who says his 16-year-old daughter won’t talk to him, and his ex-wife, Tina, who Jason claims refuses to be a parent. Their daughter claims Jason has followed her home from school, tried to fight her boyfriend, and taken pictures of her friends' license plates. She says she’s ready to confront her dad on Dr. Phil’s stage about how she ended up with a black eye and busted lip during an argument with him. Jason says he did not hurt his daughter and he is forced to stay away from her because he is afraid of getting arrested. Tina says Jason and his mother, Patricia, make the situation worse by always exerting their power over Tina and their daughter’s living situation, including Jason installing cameras around the house they live in which Patricia owns. Patricia says Tina always plays the victim but she is the reason why her granddaughter is out of control.

Loni emailed Dr. Phil multiple times saying her fiancé, Dustin, goes from sweet to furious in a split second, and has called her names in front of their 3-year-old daughter. His family questions why she stays -- but she says he just gets like that because he often drinks 12 beers a night and 60 over the weekend. Dustin admits he’s an alcoholic but he says the problem is that he lives in a state of boredom, so he turns on Dr. Phil and starts drinking until he passes out. Can Dr. Phil help Dustin acknowledge he has a problem?
