Jody and Mike say they are at odds with their 14-year-old daughter’s boyfriend, Paul. They claim the 18-year-old is jobless, sometimes sleeps in a car without a windshield and has harbored their daughter when she runs away from home. Mike even admits that he almost got into a physical altercation with Paul when he and Jody showed up at Paul’s house looking for their daughter.
