Dr. Phil tells the family they need structure " rules, meetings, communication and other learned skills " to replace the chaos they currently have. Further, he believes the entire family should be evaluated to properly diagnose any medical, neurological or cognitive problems they may have" including ADD. He introduces Dr. Frank Lawlis, chairman of the Dr. Phil advisory board and author of The ADD Answer. Dr. Lawlis agrees and says that Mike and Jason's ADD diagnosis does not explain their disrespectful behavior or their pattern of interactions with their family, and could possibly be incorrect.
The family is open to the suggestion. Kevin says, "I want it to happen. I'm tired of this."
