          Family Freeloaders

          March 11, 2004

          Unemployed, unmotivated and under your roof — they’re family freeloaders and they’re hurting the ones they love the most. Dr. Phil has advice for a 28-year-old who still lives at home and a 20-year-old who is happy to live in his older sister’s house but refuses to do any of the chores necessary to maintain it. Also, Dr. Phil finds out why a daughter thinks her mother is a gold digger.

          Living at Home at 28
          Jeremy is 28, unemployed, has never had a girlfriend, and is still living in his parents’ house. His brother Brian thinks he’s mooching off of their parents and wants Jeremy to get his life together. Jeremy says he’s unhappy with the way things are, but can’t figure out how to make it better.


          Dr. Phil gives Jeremy his strong advice.
