          Mother Of Two Claims Her Ex Wants Their Kids To Be Institutionalized


          February 25, 2019

          Susan and her now ex-husband, Michael, appeared on Dr. Phil in 2012 with their then 10-year-old daughter, Janni, who has a diagnosis of childhood-onset schizophrenia.

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

          Now divorced for several years and remarried to other people, the former couple returns to the Dr. Phil stage on Monday. They’ve been arguing over their 11-year-old son, Bodhi, who Susan claims is schizophrenic as well.

          Michael vehemently disagrees with Susan’s claim. He claims Bodhi is severely autistic, not schizophrenic, and that Susan is endangering him by going from “doctor-to-doctor” in search of the diagnosis she wants for their son.

          Susan denies Michael’s claims. She claims that he “cut and run” on her and their marriage and just sees their children “as a nuisance to his new life.”

          “I believe Michael wants them both to be institutionalized – especially Bodhi,” says Susan in the video above.

          How does Susan respond when Dr. Phil says, “Tell me why you’re so convinced that he (Bodhi) has childhood-onset schizophrenia?”
