          Why Woman Says She Wrote To Dr. Phil About Friend’s 8-Year-Old Son


          October 13, 2017

          “The day that Douglas started killing animals is the day I wrote into the Dr. Phil show,” says Lorna about her friend, Sherry’s, 8-year-old son. “I asked Sherry what she was going to do when Douglas started killing people, and she said, ‘I will be the first person that he kills.’ I think she’s right.”

          Sherry and her ex, Todd, admit that their son’s behavior is “out-of-control” and that they have a hard time calming his outbursts. They also admit they can’t agree on the best way to parent the boy.

          “He acts out with his mom because he knows she can’t send him home,” Lorna says. “Todd is not a good parent. He says he’s just being a creative boy. He’s delusional.”

          Lorna says when she spends time with the child, he doesn’t act out. “I lay down the law,” she says. “He listens to me. I don’t play that game.”

          On Thursday's episode of Dr. Phil, he has a stern warning for the parents. Can Sherry and Todd get on the same page to help their son? Check here to see where you can watch.
