          Why The Brother Of A Recovering Addict Claims Their Mom Is A Big Part Of The Problem


          April 25, 2018

          Jenny, 36, claims her mother, Lisa, kept her “loaded,” for years after she was injured in a car accident at 16. She’s now four-and-a-half years sober, but Jenny’s son, Ryan, 18, claims she’s no better now than when she was “popping pills.”

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Have a family drama that needs Dr. Phil’s help?

          Ryan and his 15-year-old sister, Maddie, claim Jenny rages at them, won’t cook or clean, and refuses to interact with her children, leaving them to raise their three younger siblings.

          Jenny’s brother claims their mother is a big part of the problem. “You need to quit playing the advocate for Jenny and trying to [expletive] defend her,” He tells Lisa in the video above, adding “You need to quit playing this back and forth game. You are the problem.”

          How does Lisa respond when Dr. Phil reads an email from Jenny’s brother claiming none of her siblings have ever been able to have a normal relationship with their mother?
