Was today's topic on Dr Phil. Anyone watch? I wanted to but had to work and forgot to set the DVR. GRRRRRR. I saw the first 10 minutes of it and am reading the on line stuff on it but really wanted to see it! I don't like how he handles DV cases and was really interested in how he handled this. Last week he had an out of control husband on and other then not convincing the wife to have no contact (had her talk to him a couple of times to calm him and at one point to see were he was at). I understand why she talked to him because she was scared of him but I don't think the show should have encouraged that and its even possible the show mislead him. I know its for ratings but having been in her shoes and having kept up contact out of fear and in order to try and keep him calm I know without a doubt that's the wrong way to handle things.
Am I over thinking this? Should I just be glad that DV is in the spotlight some? Dr Phil did say something about needing to end the silence to help fight DV and he is doing that just not sure I agree with how he handles it.
