I actually was appalled to hear her very recently tell a mother that her small son was upset about being molested by the child of a friend because they were the same age, so the victim actually wanted it, and was not a victim at all. I believe the children in question were 8 or 9, and the mother of the victim had called because there had been a "playing doctor" incident when they were preschoolers, and her son had just come to her to tell her that the other boy had continued to force him into the same type of situation, and that he was suffering from behavioral problems, and starting to wet the bed again. "Dr" Laura's advice? He is upset because he is starting to realize that he is actually wanting/liking it and that it cannot be called molestation because the two children are the same age, so the one cannot be forcing the other to do anything he doesn't want to do. I was physically ill listening to her dispense this tripe, and I am not even a CSA survivor.
But back to Dr. Phil. . .sorry.
