A mother’s suspicion, a dirty secret from the past and shocking allegations continue as Sherie-Lynn and her husband, Todd, confront the man they suspect has molested Sherie-Lynn’s son, Parker. Did Sherie-Lynn’s own father, Al, whom she claims violated her as a child, turn his sick attentions to his own grandson? Is that why Parker, now 12, has been acting out sexually since he was 4 and has recently been expelled from school for violent behavior and inappropriate sexual conduct? Al admits he inappropriately touched Sherie-Lynn when she was just 2 weeks old, but says that was it, and says he never touched Parker. But as Dr. Phil digs deeper, he uncovers physical abuse and three other possible victims. Will a lie detector test settle the matter once and for all? Sherie-Lynn’s brother, Marty, doesn’t know what to believe. How will he feel about his father babysitting his own kids after the results of the polygraph test? And, what happens next for Parker? Join the discussion.

Find out what happened on the show.

He keeps saying God is going to protect him and God knows the truth. Your darn right that God knows the truth. And the truth is OUR GOD is going to send him straight to HELL!

04/25 Confronting Grandpa

 The woman who claims her father molested her was less than believable. If he hadn't admitted it, I wouldn't believe her. Her screwing up her face to cry with no tears in sight was just creepy. Instead of going back in time, what are they doing to help her SON - who has obviously been abused and needs help right now ???

I get chills looking at that creep!  His eyes are flat and evil and scare me.  And all of the smiling he did throughout the show?  That man is very lucky that my husband was not sitting across from him on stage.  I hope he goes to prison and stays there.  And his wife?  Please, someone get her some help.  She must have been plenty abused too to be able to feel so powerless.

My question is, why is this man not in jail?  If he has already admitted to sexually deviant behavior with Sherie-Lynn, then why is he allowed to even be near any other children?

have him arrested!  maybe this will wake him up about this horrific act he has done to his daughter and now grandson. grandma should leave him and get counceling.

Follow up on degenerate Grandpa

 I am torn in many directions by today's show.  Grandpa Al represents the worst of humanity in part because he refuses to take responsibility for the damage he's obviously done.  His behavior, logic and affect were all "off" and I commend the woman's husband for not leaping across the stage to beat the old guy senseless!  If he cared at all for his daughter, his grandson, his wife...he would take this situation seriously and try to mend whatever happened to them.  His response was to laugh and clap along as they bared their souls and criticized him.  Truly DISGUSTING!

My conflict is in Dr. Phil giving this guy such a public forum.  I understand that these problems fester because they are kept secret, but my stomach churns at the thought of this character getting air-time and a large audience to "preach" his perverted doctrine to.  I hope that the woman and her husband will follow through in denying this abuser access to their children and work to prevent him from offending other unsuspecting children.  I also hope that Dr. Phil will update us on the progress that the family makes.  Though I am not normally a church-going person, today I will pray for them all and wish them peace.

I have no idea!

  I have no idea on how could that evil man sit on that stage and smile?  I have no idea on what stopped someone from jumping up there and beating him .  I have no idea how that woman sitting next to him could call herself a mother after allowing her child to be molested by him.

  I'm glad that the little boy is going get the help he needs, It is just so sad that his mother wasn't given the same when she was much younger.  It could have saved her a lot of  pain and suffering.  I sincerely hope that the old man is held accountable for his actions, hopefully that damn smile on his face will someday be knocked off.  I also hope that his wife is dealt with as well.  She is just as guilty as him. 

  If you think about it there are wild animals that have better instincts and will protect their young then this supposedly intelligent woman!

04/25 Confronting Grandpa

Dr Phil, for someone who says he knows the bible and were ready to swap scriptures with grandpa you weren't very ready today.  It's Exodus 20 not Exodus 22 where the ten commandments are.
