Dr. Phil: Krysten Needs To Keep Watch On Tim

Dr. Phil next turned to Krysten, and was very serious in saying that she needs to ensure that Tim gets into the programs that Areva Martin suggested he get into. Given that she has three children of her own that she needs to protect, he also told Krysten that she has to watch for any warning signs that Tim might be ready to have an outburst. Until Tim gets his maturity to the proper level, he is a high-risk candidate for abuse. Krysten’s duty is to her and her children first, and that means making sure Tim is doing what he needs to grow up.

What worries Krysten more than the potential violence is Tim’s past of talking with men on Craigslist. Tim was very quick to say that he has no interest in that any more, and that it was something that happened in his past and is done with.

Dr. Phil said that he wasn’t trying to smear Tim, only to make sure that Krysten was fully aware of the not-so-favorable package deal that she gets along with Tim since she has decided to stay in a relationship with him. From here on out, everything that happens between Tim and Krysten is between those two, and Brittany will step out of the situation for good.
