          Why Dr. Phil Advises A ManTo Stop Rescuing His Wife From The Consequences Of Her Shoplifting Addiction


          March 8, 2017

          Claire claims her shoplifting addiction is so strong that she has used her own children to help her to steal. Her husband, Chris, says he’s worried that at some point, Claire’s “reckless behavior” will cost them custody of their children. But Chris also admits to bailing Claire out of jail, every time she’s been arrested.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Accusations causing a rift in your relationship?

          “You have to let her know that when she does this, you’re not giving her a soft place to fall,” says Dr. Phil, alerting Chris to the pitfalls of continuing to rescue Claire from the consequences of her actions.

          “You are teaching her that you’re going to get her out of accountability, and that is enabling her to continue to do this.”

          “If it happens next time … I don’t have a white horse anymore,” says Chris.
