          ‘One Definition Of Abuse Is Failure Of A Parent To Keep A Child Out Of Harm’s Way,’ Dr. Phil Tells Mom


          January 24, 2019

          Penny says she is ready to leave her husband of seven years, Glen. She claims Glen is controlling, verbally abusive, a liar and a “narcissistic sociopath.” Penny also claims that Glen has been abusive with their 4-year-old daughter, a claim Glen vehemently denies.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Relationship on the rocks?

          “One definition of abuse is failure of a parent to keep a child out of harm’s way,” Dr. Phil informs Penny. “If you have a child exposed to someone who you believe is a danger to them, can get physical with them, can do harm to them mentally, emotionally, physically or through negligence or in any way constitute a problem with them, and you fail to remove that child from that situation, that’s negligence on your part, and you’re guilty of abuse.”
