          8-Year-Old Accused Of Having ‘Out-Of-Control’ Behavior Talks About His Life


          October 13, 2017

          Sherry and Todd say their 8-year-old son’s behavior is “out of control.” The exes claim he has stolen money, a credit card and even his grandfather’s car which he crashed. They also say he has violent outbursts and his mother claims he has harmed animals.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Conflict so big it needs a Dr. Phil solution?

          The parents, who admit that they don’t get along, say they disagree on how to discipline their son. Sherry says she’s scared of the boy and believes his behavior is more controlled with medicine; however, Todd disagrees. He says he believes Sherry is looking for a “quick fix” and that his son’s behavior is worse with medicine.
