On January 14, 2018, Louise and David Turpin were arrested at their Perris, California home after police claim they discovered that their 13 children were living in deplorable conditions. It is alleged that the Turpins starved, tortured and shackled the kids, ages 2-29, and didn’t let them use the bathroom and only allowed them one shower a year.

“If you see something, you need to say something,” Dr. Phil says. “It’s not about being a Big Brother society. It’s not about informing on your neighbor. But it is about being sensitive, and it is paying attention if you see a child that just doesn’t look right to you, doesn’t feel right to you. It takes so little time to pick up the phone.”
