Dad Claims 7-Year-Old’s Behavior Issues Aren’t His Fault: ‘The Problem Is His Mother’s Parenting’

Faren says her 7-year-old son, Michael, has all-day tantrums in which he lashes out verbally and physically at her, her boyfriend Ricky, their pets, and other children in the home. “Michael is not the problem,” claims the boy’s father, Steven, who insists that – for the most part – his son is well-behaved in his home. “The problem is his mother’s parenting.” Steven claims that Michael’s behavior issues at Faren’s house are her fault because she “antagonizes” their son. How does Steven say he disciplined Michael during a recent incident involving the 7-year-old and his 19-month brother? This episode of Dr. Phil, “Threatened By My Second Grader,” airs Thursday.
