Kid - "I have pictures of when you gave me a bloody nose..."

Mother's response - "I grew up in a home where there was REAL abuse..."

Not exactly something you want to say on camera, since it is implying that you don't believe giving your child a bloody nose qualifies as "abuse" and so is not going to stop.

"I have no recollection of that."

For f*cks sake, this is an abusive mother, admitting to slapping him and hitting him with a plate, and he's on "brat camp?"

Is Dr. Phil utterly retarded? Or am I missing something?

"I have no recollection of those events."

Not the best word choice to convince people that you didn't do it.

This segment has honestly made me go from "neutral" on Dr. Phil to "thorough hatred."

He's vilifying an abused child.

Wow.. Sad.

My friend is a social worker, I hear about crap like this all the time. When you can't force the adults to act like adults, it just seems hopeless sometimes.

And I think it will eventually behoove this kid that he is so smart. He will have more awareness and understanding of what exactly is going on and have a better chance to not make the same mistake.

On the other hand, she said she suffered abuse too. Let's hope he breaks the cycle.

Also, I agree Dr. Phil is handling this situation shamefully. Remember- his credentials (I believe) stop at licensed psychologist. He is hardly a doctor.

But that child is a brat and should go to brat camp, just the mother should also go through some kind of bitch camp as well. You can tell by the way that the child gets to say his stuff about the airplane, then as soon as the mother tries to talk, he interrupts saying that she never lets him speak. He obviously has a serious lying problem (of course, the mothers actions and word choices indicate that she has abuse problems too).

He actually has a PhD in psychology, which allows him to use the title "doctor."

Judging from his background and the fact that his sister just died, he damn well needs some sort of camp, but it should be therapy, not military-style deflating egos.

That kid has got a LOT of anger and grief to deal with.

ORLY?

Well, you can see how biased I used to be against psychologists when I formed this understanding of Dr. Phil lol

I'd say both of them are in the wrong.

Also, I sorta doubt this only happens in America.....

I do not think that kid was doing ANYTHING wrong. As for the mother, she is a CLASS 1 BITCH. Dr. Phil is an idiot.

That's the problem I have with Dr. Phil is that he isn't trying to help people or anything. He's just exploiting people for problems.

I don't. Only in America could you curse off your parent and slap them across the face without serious punishment. That's not to say that the mother's any better.

What happens in England if you smack your parent? Beheading?
