          Man Claims His Ex’s Boyfriend Is Trying To Replace Him As Dad To Their Children


          March 6, 2018

          Sixteen-year-old Skylar claims her mother, Niki’s boyfriend, John, “Seems very arrogant and narcissistic.” Her 14-year-old sister, Zoe, says John is “condescending,” and “makes me feel like I’m 5 years old.”

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

          The teens, along with their older sister, Sadie, claim their mother has neglected them, misses their school and sporting events; instead choosing to spend her time with John, over them. They also claim Niki tries to force them to spend what time they do have with her, at John’s home. Niki admits her relationship with John may have created a wedge between her and her daughters but denies putting John before her girls.

          “What makes me the angriest about John is the fact that he is trying to replace me as the dad of my children,” claims Niki’s ex-husband, Marcus, adding “That doesn’t sit right with me. They’re my kids.”

          “I’m not trying to be a parent, I only want to be as much a part of the girls’ lives as they want me to be,” says John, denying Marcus’s claim. He says that when the girls talk back and are disrespectful to Niki, Marcus does nothing to correct them, claiming, “I think Marcus uses the girls to cause Niki pain.”

          Does Dr. Phil have a plan to help Niki, Marcus, and their children resolve their conflict? And what does he tell John about how he can support Niki, without interjecting himself into the family dynamic?
