          Dr. Phil To Guest: ‘Your Job Is To Protect Your Child’


          April 20, 2017

          Iain claims his 15-year-old stepdaughter, Samantha, is ”lazy,” ”controlling,” and ”narcissistic.” He says he blames her for problems in his 12-year marriage to her mother, Sandi, and wants her out of the house at the end of the school year.

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

          Samantha, an honor student who claims she’s never been in trouble outside of home, says Iain’s “labels,” and “name-calling“ make her feel unwanted. She says she wants a “change of house.”

          Sandi claims Iain is verbally and emotionally abusive towards Samantha and says she’s “had enough.”

          “What the hell are you thinking? You don’t subject your child to something like this,” says Dr. Phil to Sandi on Friday’s episode.

          “You say ’I’m fed up with this – I’m fed up with this –‘ You continue to bring her into a hostile environment where somebody is pounding on her self-esteem; pounding on her self-worth…?’ What the hell is wrong with you, woman? Your job is to protect your child!”

          When Dr. Phil tells Sandi to either “walk her out of the situation or I’m reporting you before the sun sets today,” what does Sandi say?
