          Why Dr. Phil Says 15-Year-Old Shouldn’t Go Back To His Parents’ Home ‘Right Now’

          VIDEO

          August 31, 2018

          Fifteen-year-old Cole has been kicked out of multiple schools and isn’t allowed to live at home because his parents, Josh and Lena, claim he’s angry, violent, steals, drinks, smokes marijuana, and bullies his younger siblings.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Have a Volatile Teen, Parent or Sibling?

          Cole denies their claims, saying his parents are too strict, and that they’ve “over-exaggerated” the behaviors they’re accusing him of. He says he misses his little brothers and wants to be able to go back home to live with them until he turns 16, and can petition the court for emancipation.

          Recommending family counseling Dr. Phil tells Josh and Lena, “I don’t think he should move in right now.”

          Then, addressing Cole, he says, “You can maybe move home if you guys can come up with a plan where it’s not chaotic, and everybody respects everybody else.”

          Offering Cole the choice to attend Wingate Wilderness Therapy in Utah, a residential program for struggling teens and young adults, Dr. Phil tells him, “It’s a perfect fit for you if you wanted to call timeout and hit the reset button for yourself.”

          Does Cole say he wants to go?
