Mom vs. Sons: Who is Bullying Whom?
Twenty-four-year-old JT and his 20-year-old brother, Jacob, say they’d like to move out of their mom, Alisa’s, home and have independent lives, but they feel bullied by their own mother into staying at home and taking care of her. The young men also say they feel afraid to leave their mom alone because they fear she won’t be able to take care of herself. Alisa claims she was once so close with JT and Jacob, they were like “The Three Musketeers,” but in the past two years, her sons have become “like the devil,” constantly smoking marijuana and disrespecting her. Dr. Phil works to get to the bottom of exactly what is going on in this dysfunctional household. Dr. Phil invites Dr. Hans Breiter to explain to JT and Jacob more about the severe risks of using marijuana, especially for young people with developing brains.
