“Save My Lazy Grandson Before I Make Him Homeless!”
Michelle says she is at her wits’ end with her 22-year-old grandson, Conner, who, according to her, isn’t just lazy but has “failed to launch.” Michelle claims Conner, who has lived with her for the last year, does not regularly shower, brush his teeth, shave, clean his room or change his clothes. He also has never met his girlfriend of five years in person because, according to Michelle, “that would involve having to leave the house.” Conner says Michelle is overreacting and that at 22, he “shouldn’t have life figured out.” He says he hasn’t yet met his girlfriend in person because of finances. Conner’s mother, Jamie, says she agrees Conner is lazy but believes her mother Michelle is making matters worse by being too strict on him. Dr. Phil arranges for Conner to have a one-on-one session with life development coach Mike Bayer to understand why Conner may be struggling to launch, and discusses his new book, One Decision. Will Conner accept the help offered to him? Tune in to find out!
