Danielle and Josh agree their six-year marriage has turned "toxic." Danielle, who is pregnant with their third child, claims Josh has cheated on her numerous times and has been physically and verbally abusive, even shoving a bleach-soaked rag down her throat. Josh says Danielle blames him for everything wrong in their marriage and pushes him until he explodes. Both admit that the fighting often occurs in front of their two young sons.  
Dr. Phil tells the couple that research shows that when children witness domestic violence, the structure of their brain changes. “They’re hyper-vigilant all the time. They’re at higher risk for depression, anxiety, and even schizophrenia in adulthood,” Dr. Phil says. “You don’t have the right to do what you’re doing, to do this in front of these children.”

Hear more about how fighting in front of children affects them in the video above. And, find out why Dr. Phil says he’s putting these parents “on notice.”
