Telling you how to dress, when to take a shower and what to watch on TV sounds like normal behavior from a mother, but what about a wife? Yadia is a self-proclaimed control freak who says she cannot stop controlling everything and everyone in her life, and her family is saying, “Enough is enough!” Yadia says she even has her 18-year-old son, Michael, trained so well that he actually tells her when he goes to the bathroom. Her husband, David, says her behavior is so out of control, if she doesn’t change soon, a third separation is a definite possibility. How will Yadia do when Dr. Phil insists that David and Michael dress themselves and ride to the show in a separate vehicle from her? And the experiment doesn’t end there. Don’t miss what Yadia has to do before speaking with Dr. Phil. And, see what a typical day is like for this controller, and learn what is at the root of her anxious behavior. Do you like to control all the decisions, or do you know someone who does?

Maybe she should get a cat. It would just give her a disdainful glance and walk away. Hey! Maybe her husband should start doing that!

04/28 Need for Control

Personally, I don't think that anyone should be controlled. What would happen if this was the other way around with a man controlling everyone? Then we wouldn't be taking it so lightly.

Everyone thinks the hen pecked husband is funny. But her son? I pity the woman who marries him. She`ll have the mother in law from hell!

It only took me five minutes to realize that this woman should not be allowed to die a natural death. How can ANYONE bear to be around her?????? And, what is wrong with her husband...he's pathetic and so is the son...they act like victims. The husband whines, 'I have no control of my own finances'...well, Yeah, you do, you've just given it up.

how can you live like this?

It was almost hard to watch to whole show. How can a person live like this? And I mean Yadia being this controling, the husband not standing up and the son probably just wishing he could disappear...

Control Issues

I have never gotten this extreme but feel I do have control issues. I don't subject my boyfriend to the things she does. I am the victim to my own controlling ways. I am very hard on myself and it's a terrible way to live. I can relate to the molestation, abortion, and mental abuse she has experience. I know how she feels and is very sypathetic but she has to own the wrong she has done to her family. I really think she wants the help and thank goodness Dr. Phil is going to help her and her family. Good luck Yadia. I sincerely mean that.
