Chris and Dawn say their privileged 15-year-old son, Dawson, has created a fantasy life which he presents to his friends on social media, where he is seen as a criminal with a baby mama, a broken family, and on probation for serving jail time. 
On Tuesday’s episode of Dr. Phil, Dawson reveals more details about his life that he says his parents don’t know.

“I carry a gun ‘cause people know I sell weed, and if you don’t have a gun and you sell weed, then you’re just putting a target on your back,” the teen says. “I’ve even robbed someone for a gun before, even though I knew how risky it was.”
Hear more of Dawson’s revelations in the video above. And, Dr. Phil doesn’t mince words when he tells Dawson the possible consequences of his crimes – and Chris and Dawn what he believes they could be doing better.
And, on Tuesday, when Dr. Phil presents a group of people to explain the consequences of dangerous behavior, will Dawson decide to change? Check here to see where you can tune in.
