          Today’s Takeaway: “I Think My Husband’s Narcissistic Ex is Faking Cancer and Making My Stepsons Sick”


          October 20, 2017

          Marcus and his wife, Amber, are in a custody battle with Marcus’ ex-wife and mother of his two sons, Cari. The couple claims Cari is controlling and manipulative, overmedicates the boys and could suffer from Munchausen syndrome by proxy.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Feuds and fights with family, friends or neighbor?

          Cari says she’s a great mom and says Marcus and Amber are the problem. She claims Amber is trying to make her children call her Mommy and wants to take the kids from her so she can have them to herself.

          Marcus and Cari often fight in front of their boys, who say they’ve been affected by all the arguing.

          After Dr. Phil speaks with the family, does he think there’s a way for them to co-parent in peace? Watch the video above to hear his thoughts from after the show. And, he offers advice for all parents on the importance of putting your child’s needs above your own.
