          Mom Says 20-Year-Old Son Is ‘Stuck At 16’


          February 27, 2019

          Amy claims her 20-year-old son, Jai, refuses to work or get his GED, smokes marijuana all day, yells at and disrespects her, and sometimes threatens her.

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

          Noting that Jai has abandonment issues due to his parents’ divorce, survived two life-threatening illnesses since turning 18, and has struggled with his mental health since childhood, Amy says, “The biggest thing that I struggle with is that I feel sorry for him. He’s been through a lot in his short life.”

          She says even though Jai is 20, “I feel like he’s stuck at 16.”

          “You think I’m a scrub. Kick me out,” Jai tells Amy in the video above. He claims it’s her fault that he is the way he is. Does Dr. Phil say he agrees?
