I guess to get the free counseling that

Regardless of whether or not one considers it to be abusive, EGD brings up a good point.

I don't think she saw it as abuse.

Tha is a good question why did she allow her 10 year old to tape her doing this? She had to know that what she was doing was wrong, will more than likley be questioned and there may be a consequence for her actions. Just the fact she allowed her 10 year old to tape it makes me shutter...

the discipline was wrong on any angle..but why would you deliberately have your DD film you commiting abuse and send the clip to dr.phil?

you think the mother exaggerated her attempt to "punish" her son to get on Dr. Phil and maybe get paid?

If that is true, that back fired on her.

i watch dr.phil sometimes, i like his common sense and wit, LOL..but i often think this too, what drives someone to go on national television to air their dirty laundry!

i think this case was awful but i do think it could have been exaggerated too, the lady's 10 YO DD was filming the abuse.
