Scott and Tanya claim their 19-year-old daughter, Courtney’s, boyfriend disrespects, bullies, manipulates, and degrades her – and that it’s tearing their family apart. The couple claims he influenced Courtney to quit college and isolated her from them by moving her in with him and his family.

Courtney denies her parents claims and insists it’s her parents, not her boyfriend, who forced her to choose between them and him.

“You don’t always agree with every choice your kids make,” says Dr. Phil to Scott and Tanya in the video above. “You meet them where they are.”
