Dr. Phil's guests are drowning in debt. It's tearing one marriage apart and causing a single mom to think about filing for bankruptcy. First, Deborah says she was raised with wealth and privilege, and she didn't expect to be flat broke and living in a trailer when she married Chris. Chris works 12 hours a day, but they can't even pay their monthly bills. Is Chris not demanding enough from himself, or is Deborah too demanding? Also, find out the secret Deborah's been keeping from her family back in England. Then, Kristine is a school teacher and single mom who  treats her friends to dinner and goes on expensive vacations even though she is over her head in debt -- to the tune of $137,000! Her sister, Stefanie, says she's tired of bailing Kristine out when she can't pay the bills, and thinks it's time for  an intervention. Plus, a financial expert shares her advice for avoiding bankruptcy. Talk about the show here.


Find out what happened on the show.

Homecoming shooting

Dr. Phil,

   I feel that we as parents MUST teach our children that it’s wrong, to torment other kids that are different and teach them to have empathy for that person(s).  

   All too often we parents think and say “Oh my child/children wouldn’t do or say that”.  She or he is a good girl/boy.  Let’s face it, kids can be cruel and ugly just to make themselves and their friends (who are in their click or group) look and feel good about themselves. That is wrong.

  When you torment someone long enough any adolescent would act out to protect themselves.  Even adults can loose control when brought to the edge of reason…... right?

   In the world of business we have a no harassment policy and if you fail to comply then you will pay the consequences for your actions.  From a very young age we should be teaching our children that when they do something wrong there will be consequences.


Stay safe.
