It's not always the parent's fault

Dr. Phil wouldn't have a clue about what to do with some of the kids I have dealt with. He has the luxury of ending the show with simple advice and a referral to a therapist that the television station will pay for. Off camera, the therapist has to do the heavy lifting and that's the messy part that you don't see.

I agree that there are many parents who need to learn to a thing or two, but there are also kids out there that would give the most gifted super nanny absolute fits.
