          ‘You’re Bullying That Boy,’ Dr. Phil Tells A Father


          November 20, 2017

          John says he’s convinced his son, Jack, is possessed by demons or the devil. He says the 12-year-old is extremely violent and has displayed unusual behavior that he attributes to an evil force inside his son. He says he’s so concerned his son may harm his family, he wants to have an exorcism performed on the boy.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Know someone with outrageous behavior?

          Dr. Phil points out to John that there most likely are alternative explanations for his son’s behavior, including mental health conditions and environmental factors, such as his home life. He plays video of John interacting with Jack, where he is seen looming over the child and screaming.

          “I can’t begin to tell you how counterproductive this is to a child that is experiencing the inability to regulate his emotions. And what I’m saying to you is this is intimidating and violent behavior,” Dr. Phil warns John. “You’re bullying that boy.”
