          Man Describes Mother-In-Law As ‘Violent,’ ‘Aggressive,’ And ‘A Whirlwind Of Chaos’


          September 15, 2017

          Lisa adamantly denies that she is an alcoholic, but her son-in-law, Brent, describes her as “a whirlwind of chaos.”

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Toxic Relative?

          “When Lisa drinks, she is very violent and aggressive. She’s out of control,” says Brent, who claims that over the past 2-3 years, Lisa’s “drunken episodes” have been occurring “every other week.”

          He claims his mother-in-law turns “what could be happy situations into nightmare situations,” with verbal and physical attacks, adding, “I don’t want my kids to grow up around a drunk.”

          Claiming his wife, Misti, enables her mom by making excuses for her, Brent says she spends the majority of her time dealing with Lisa’s problems – which takes time away from him and their children. He says she “needs to take more of a tough love approach” with Lisa.

          Does Misti agree with Brent’s assertion that she enables Lisa?
