          ‘The Odds Of Having Two Children With Schizophrenia Is About A Million-To-One,’ Says Dad


          February 25, 2019

          Michael and Susan, parents of 16-year-old Janni, appeared on Dr. Phil in 2012, a few years after she was diagnosed with childhood-onset schizophrenia at age 6. On Monday, the now former couple is back to talk about their 11-year-old son, Bodhi, who Susan claims is both autistic and schizophrenic.

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

          Michael agrees that Bodhi is on the autism spectrum but adamantly disagrees with Susan about him having schizophrenia. He says, “The odds of having two children with schizophrenia is about a million-to-one.”

          Michael claims that Susan has “gone from doctor to doctor,” to get a diagnosis and a medication prescribed for Bodhi specific to schizophrenia; a drug of “last resort” for severe, untreatable schizophrenia, which Michael says is a “horrible idea.”

          Why does he claim that Susan, who has been documenting Bodhi’s struggles on YouTube, is both punishing him for their divorce and using their son to further another agenda?
