          Why Dr. Phil Calls 8-Year-Old’s Conversation With Mom ‘Heartbreaking’


          October 13, 2017

          Sherry says living with her 8-year-old son is a “nightmare.” She says there is screaming and yelling from the moment he wakes up until he goes to bed and she doesn’t know how to rein in his “out-of-control” behavior.

          To make matters worse, Sherry says she and her ex, Todd, can’t agree on how to parent their child, and they both blame each other for the child’s behavior.

          In the video above, hear a conversation between Sherry and the young boy, and see why he asks his mom, “Why are you getting tired of me?”
