I never watch daytime television, so tonight’s Dr. Phil’s special “Family First” was the first time I have seen this guy in action.
He trotted out one horror story after another. One woman let her 2 year old watch 9 hours of TV a day. Another woman bought her daugher four rooms of stuffed animals. He sternly told these women to mend their ways. And shared his wisdom. If a child only colors in the lines [dramatic pause], she is containing her spirit within those lines as well.
On the other hand, he had good things to say about limiting the importance of material possessions and concentrating on your kids before other distractions in one’s life.
So, what’s with Dr. Phil? Is he a fat, bald phony or a rather smart guy whose priorities are in the right place?
