          July 07, 2004

          How you discipline your children could make or break their self-esteem, so how hard is too hard when it comes to discipline? Dr. Phil talks with parents who feel their spouse disciplines too hard.

          Swearing and Yelling
          Lito thinks his wife Jill’s cursing and yelling is too hard on their children. Jill says she’s harsh because she doesn’t feel respected as a step-parent.

          Will Jill change the way she speaks?

          Spanking with a Spatula
          Jason wants to bust his wife, Tressa, for using a spatula to spank their daughter. Tressa defends herself saying she uses a spatula because she can’t hit hard enough with her hand.


          Will Tressa learn other ways to discipline?
