          May 10, 2016

          PLAYING “I Sleep With A Gun Because I Am Terrified My 19-Year-Old Son Will Kill Me”
          Angie claims her 19-year-old son, Nick, is so volatile and out of control, she has been sleeping with a shotgun next to her bed. But Nick says that he is not the problem — his mom is! He claims that she calls him worthless, tells him his brothers are much better than he is and says that she has said she wished she could get rid of him. What does Nick say happened nine years ago that has driven a wedge between him and his mother? Unbeknownst to Nick, Angie recorded audio of one of Nick’s rants toward her and sent it to Dr. Phil. Who is really at fault? Dr. Phil gets to the heart of this family’s drama and tells them what they must do if they are ever going to have a peaceful, loving family again.
