Dr. Phil: Tim’s Ignorant Behavior Does Not Come From A Place Of Evil
In order for Tim to mature, there needs to be a lot of gaps filled in. Since he had no father growing up, Tim did not have someone there to give him advice that only a father can give, and many of the outrageous things that Tim says do not necessarily come from a place of evil, but from ignorance. Ignorance is not generally the fault of the ignorant, but it is something that needs to be fixed. Therefore, by getting professional help in the form of therapy, Tim will no longer take part in ignorant behavior.
