I DVR'd an episode where two teens have two kids. They're 18 and married. He's talking about how he cant imagine his 20 year old child raising a plant, much less a child. He also isn't even trying to help them get their marriage back on track, he's just encouraging divorce.
I don't think he would encourage divorce if they were older, even if they were having the same issues.
And I was a mother at 20. I got pregnant with my daughter (on purpose) when I was 19. I got married (on purpose) when I was 18. We've been married almost 5 years and we have two kids. Doesn't he think that maybe the teen divorce rate is so high because no one supports them or takes them seriously?
I'm very happy with my life and my decisions. I kind of take exception to someone saying my life and my family is bound to fail.
Do you think young families are all dysfunctional?

it depends on the family and how mature they are and how they live their life.. i DO NOT agree with dr phil. he should NEVER push people with kids apart.. I stopped watching him bc he told a family to down size/. sell a car if not BOTH move into a smaller house blah blah REALLY?? in stead of that how about FAMILY TIME do stuff together.. Hes not a really DR anyway no license
