It was about bipolar disorder.  It was about a woman who was really mean to her kids all the time.  mad

I missed it but have got dig. cable so i'm sure they'll repeat it at some time during the night. All those chanels and it seems all they do is repeat the same shows over and over, lol.
Good judgement comes from experience and alot of that comes from bad judgement.

I find it hard to excuse that. If she were that out of control she needed to seek help if not for her own, then her childrens sake. If she were too far gone to seek it on her own, her family owed it to those kids to intervene. I didn't see the show, but thats a really sore spot with me. When the kids suffer and noone steps up to the plate.

Ellie I totally agree and he was getting her help but also told her she should not have the kids ...I think if that were here in Canada the kids would have been taken ,she had the one up against a wall by his throat told the 2 boys every chance she got she hated them ..I dont think she was DX with Bi Polar...unlike the other fellow that was on the show ..this woman seriously was way way outta control.....and I dont remember any mention of her on meds but I could be wrong ......take care sis ........
The other fellow on there was dx with this and he was not violent to others at all .in fact very gentle with his nieces and nephews .......
His story is what really took my interest ,I was not impressed with Dr Phil letting her nor the authorities keep the kids ......

I totally agree.  I thought to use her as an example of bi polar was way over the top.  She was just plain mean and using bi polar as an excuse.  Those poor boys, I felt so sorry for them.  They will never recover from her abuse.  I'm disappointed in Dr. Phil.
