          The New Generation of Moochers

          March 29, 2006

          Meet the “Boomerang Generation” — Children who go to college and then move back in with their parents after leaving the nest, sometimes multiple times. Dr. Phil shares advice for parents and their adult children who want to end this cycle.

          Hidden Camera Experiment on the Audience

          Before the show, audience members had the opportunity to take a freebie from a table set up backstage. A sign said Please Just Take ONE, but some audience members gave into temptation and helped themselves to more than a single giveaway. One woman caught on tape laughs and covers her face in embarrassment as Dr. Phil rolls the video. 



          Moocher Madness

          Shair and Byron are facing eviction because three of their adult children — along with their families and pets — have moved back home. With a crowd of 13 under one roof, they say they are willing to do anything to get their children out of the house.


          Dr. Phil’s surprise for the family.

          Freeloader for Life?

          Kirsten, 36, has a great education, but has depended on her family to take care of her for the last 18 years, and she’s still living at home with her parents.



          What’s at the root of Kirsten’s freeloading ways?
