Have An Out-Of-Control Child? You Could Be Part Of The Problem (VIDEO)

Parents say their 24-year-old son, Johnny, has extreme rage issues, and they fear he may kill them. They claim they’ve done everything to help their son, including having him arrested and committed to psych wards seven times, but that nothing has worked. Johnny says his parents disrespect and antagonize him, causing him to act out.

Watch as Dr. Phil tells the parents they are enabling their son. “You people are so part of this problem; you are so not part of the solution,” he says. “He behaves like a wild man and he’s got more insight than the two of you put together. You’re in a bad situation when the guy walking around with a machete is the one with his feet on the ground.”
