Claiming Amber drinks too much and sometimes behaves erratically, Vickie and Larry say their daughter blames them for everything bad that has happened to her since her divorce, eight years ago.
TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Life in crisis?
Amber claims she was raised in an abusive home (which her parents deny), and says they had her committed to a state mental health facility – eight times.
“I think you’re a good person in a bad place – but I don’t think you’re crazy,” Larry tells Amber on Thursday’s episode. The three join Dr. Phil to discuss various incidents from the past several years they say have fostered chaos and dysfunction in their family.
What does Dr. Phil mean when he tells the family “This is stereo dysfunction?”
And why does Amber say she believes her ex-husband, Bo, “did the best he could with the cards that he was dealt?” Part two of this two-part Dr. Phil airs Thursday.
