          unPHILtered: To Change Behavior, Start With The Basics


          February 1, 2019

          Dr. Phil says that if you want to change a child’s behavior, you have to start with the basics: You don’t reward bad behavior; you earn your privileges, and it starts with treating each other with dignity and respect.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: The final straw! Need Dr. Phil to Step in?

          On Friday’s episode, Dr. Phil speaks with Jennifer, who says her son, Alex, is “addicted and obsessed” with violent video games – which she buys for him. She says his behavior has taken a turn for the worse, and he is aggressive and violent. She also says that the 12-year-old has the rule of the house, and she has to ask him for permission to do anything. Dr. Phil tells her that she should try Commando Parenting as a way to get Alex’s behavior under control. Learn more here.
