Christine says when she divorced Tom 14 years ago, it affected all her children, including her quadruplets. Tom claims Christine has brainwashed their children into thinking he was abusive and manipulated them, behavior he denies. Two of their daughters, Maria and Liz, say they hold a lot of anger from their past and manage it through violence, eating disorders, and smoking weed. They currently live at Tom’s house, which they say reminds them of a “mental institution.” They claim there is always screaming and the family punches holes in the walls. Tom says he tries to keep his house in order, but his children have destroyed it, causing over $10k in damage. Maria and Liz say the house is disgusting, and their dad is so controlling that he won’t allow them to clean. Who is telling the truth? Dr. Phil says he is going to get to the root of the problem.

Maria and Liz say their family is completely toxic. Maria says she takes out her anger by fighting and punching holes in the house, while her sister Liz says she had to quit her job to take care of Maria. Their older sister, Antonia, says she was only able to change her life after moving away from her family. She claims their dad, Tom, is the reason for the family trauma because he’s a sociopath, abusive and an alcoholic – accusations Tom vehemently denies. Their mom, Christine, claims her 20-year-old quadruplet children don’t know how to be adults. Tom claims Christine has given up on their children, and he is their last hope. Who is telling the truth? Plus, award-winning author Mitch Albom joins Dr. Phil for a touching segment about spirituality, life and loss featuring his new novel, The Stranger In The Lifeboat.
