Dr. Phil: Roger Has Helped His Daughter To Make Himself Feel Better
Dr Phil said that there is no way that today is the first time Roger has realized that he is enabling his emotionally underdeveloped daughter, who has found it easy to manipulate her father into funding her addiction. Roger said that today might be the first time that he has admitted that he is an agent of death in his daughter’s life, and that by bailing her out of trouble, giving her money, and buying her a play to stay, he has acted only to make himself feel better, not his daughter, and she deserves to get better.
Dr. Phil: Jordan’s Selfish Family Is Not Confronting The Real Problems
Jordan used to be an intelligent, vibrant, and engaging young woman who made some bad decisions that were only compounded by a selfish family that did not think that by helping her to put their minds at ease, they were actually plotting her demise. By helping Jordan out as much as they have, the family has never had to fully confront and fix their problems. According to Dr. Phil, there were a lot of topics the family wouldn’t speak on to the staff, which betrays Roger’s proclamations that he knows nothing and wants to find help for his daughter.
Dr. Phil: Roger Is Sincere, But Not Following Through
Dr. Phil thought that he loved his daughter very much and would give everything he has to make his daughter well again, but he is very misguided and, though Dr. Phil also believed that Roger truly means it when he says he is going to cut his daughter off, whether or not he can actually follow through with that remains to be seen because he has not exactly set a good track record for himself. Dr. Phil said that form this point forward, Roger should just stick the syringe in his daughter’s arm when he gives her money, because that’s what he’s doing.
