I saw this question Donna posed on the Dr. Phil thread and I have this same question. I meant to pose it here, but you know how that is, I forgot. I admit, I'm a fan of the show. Not because I think that her techniques apply to everyone, but I do like to see the positive results (I suppose I like a happy ending). Anyway, I've also wondered if they screen the families and the children for disorders? Do the producers rule out any possible medical reason of the children's behavior by having the children evaluated? For example, last week Jo went on about how a three year old boy wasn't potty trained yet. How he should be potty trained by now! She would have had a field day with me and mine. Daughter wasn't trained until 5 and son until he was 6. This was inspite of all efforts of me, teachers, and aides, to help them. I believe it was more of brain signal issue for my difficult children. Not some parenting flaw to be pinned on me. Any thoughts?
