Thomas claims his 22-year-old stepson, Dylan, is lazy, disrespectful, volatile and abusive. He also claims that Dylan has been using the death of his friend, Bryce, as a “crutch” to justify his behaviors for the past two years.

“I don’t know whether he’s crying out for attention or whether he really feels that way, but at some point, you have to move forward with your life,” he says.

Dylan claims that Thomas doesn’t understand his grief and only talks to him when he’s doing something wrong.

“How can this kid exist or survive or thrive if that’s what he’s up against?” asks Dylan’s father Don, on Friday’s Dr. Phil.

Addressing Thomas, he continues, “I mean, whether you like it or not, when you married his mother, this is your stepchild. And it’s just disgusting that that’s your mindset.”

Thomas says it’s time for Dylan to get out of his house. Does Don say Dylan can move in with him?
