          The Most Enabling Mother in America?

          February 28, 2019

          PLAYING The Most Enabling Mother in America?
          Amy says her 20-year-old son, Jai, is a “rageaholic ticking time bomb” and worries he’s on the verge of seriously hurting someone, especially since he recently purchased a semi-automatic rifle.

          Amy claims managing Jai’s anger is a constant battle, so much so that she says he got her fired and she is on the verge of being evicted. Amy admits she allows her son to do nothing all day besides smoke pot and play video games because she says she feels bad for him due to his recent struggle with cancer. Jai says he can’t stand his mother and her constant nagging. He says she’s a helicopter parent who still treats him like a child. Jai says he loves marijuana, smokes 24/7, and believes it’s the only thing that helps with his horrible anger. Is Amy the most enabling mother in America? Can Jai learn to control his black-out rage? Can Dr. Phil fix this broken family dynamic? Find out!
