          How Parents Can Help Their Adult Children Succeed In The World


          January 27, 2017

          Krissie and Randy say it’s time for their son, Justin, to grow up, take accountability for his actions and move out of their home. They say the 23-year-old is jobless, ‘smokes weed’ all day and ‘bullies them.’ They also claim that he is not an engaged parent with his 18-month-old daughter.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Huge family drama?

          Dr. Phil points out the ways Krissie and Randy enable their son’s behavior, giving him no reason to want to leave their home. On Friday’s episode, he offers them -- and all parents – advice for helping children find their way in life.

          “Necessity is the mother of invention. When you have a necessity, you will invent something to meet the need,” Dr. Phil says. “He’s never going to observe himself master his life until he is required to do so.”
