          Woman Says Son Is ‘Ruining’ Her And Her Husband’s Life


          October 9, 2017

          Susan claims her son, JJ, is a lazy, stealing, unemployed, violent moocher. She says he refuses to support himself or his 4-month-old son because he prefers to waste his time lying around drinking while she foots the bill.

          “I don’t want to call myself an enabler; I want to call myself helpful. JJ is my baby boy,” says Susan of her 27-year-old son.

          She admits that she and her husband have let JJ live in their apartment buildings rent-free before having to kick him out and that she buys him shoes, lets him use her car and pays for gas and insurance.

          “Susan is the ultimate enabler,” says her husband, Steven. He says after he kicked JJ out of the house, his wife bought a camper van and moved JJ into their backyard, where she continues to bring food and even money out to him.

          Desperate to get JJ back on track, the couple turns to Dr. Phil for help. “He's ruining my life and my husband's life. We've had it,” says Susan.
