Parents: Are You Abusing Your Power? (VIDEO)

Could you be taking out your frustrations about money, your job or your marriage on your kids? “It’s just awfully easy to turn to the children and vent things that really have nothing to do with them,” says Dr. Phil. “Look at yourself through the eyes of little ones,” he suggests. “You’re bigger, you’re stronger, you’re louder.
