          Dr. Phil To Guest:’You Are A Reckless Parent’


          February 25, 2019

          Michael says his 11-year-old son, Bodhi, is on the autism spectrum, but he adamantly disagrees with his ex-wife, Susan, who claims the child is also schizophrenic. He claims that Suzan has “gone from doctor to doctor,” to get a diagnosis and a drug of “last resort” prescribed for Bodhi that is reserved for severe, untreatable schizophrenia.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Know someone with outrageous behavior?

          Susan, who denies seeking out the drug, insists Bodhi has childhood-onset schizophrenia. She admits she’s taken him to a lot of doctors, claiming the mental healthcare community gives out “blank” diagnoses of autism, when “usually there’s a mixture of both.”

          “The problem is, you won’t listen to them,” says Michael.

          “Well they haven’t been right,” She replies.
