Stay-at-home mom Jessica claims her soon-to-be ex-husband of 23 years, Mike, is a narcissist who controls everything in her and their teenage daughters’ lives, especially the finances.

Sixteen-year-old Chloe and 18-year-old Zoey say the worst thing he did was to shatter their dreams of becoming professional dancers in New York City. But Mike claims Jessica is putting the girls in the middle of their fight and brainwashing them to hate him. Dr. Phil tells Mike and Jessica what every couple needs to do with children when their marriage falls apart.
