          Dr. Phil To Guest: ‘When You’re A Hammer Everything Looks Like A Nail’


          February 22, 2018

          Sarah says she was homeless and living in a tent when Brooke and her husband, Jason, took her into their home. After moving in with the couple and their seven children, Sarah claims she observed some things that she says looked like warning signs of child neglect and possible sexual abuse, which Brooke and Jason vehemently deny. Sarah says she told the local child welfare agency about her suspicions, but the couple says they were cleared of any wrongdoing. Sarah says she doesn’t regret reporting them.

          Jason and Brooke say Sarah was critical of their parenting from the beginning and overstepped her bounds while staying with them.

          When asked about why her own children were taken away from her, Sarah says, “I’ve been an addict for 33 years, ignoring and normalizing bad behavior that was taught to me, and I’m just learning now that I have my own voice, and I can create my own morals and values. So, my rights have been severed from my kids, which I agree is acceptable because I was not – and I’m still not – in the right place to have my children.”

          When Dr. Phil says, “It appears to me that you may be hypersensitive to these issues. And it’s like the old saying: when you’re a hammer everything looks like a nail, and when you’re a victim, everyone looks like they’ve been abused,” how does Sarah respond?
