A mother’s suspicion, a dirty secret from the past and shocking allegations continue as Sherie-Lynn and her husband, Todd, confront the man they suspect has molested Sherie-Lynn’s son, Parker. Did Sherie-Lynn’s own father, Al, whom she claims violated her as a child, turn his sick attentions to his own grandson? Is that why Parker, now 12, has been acting out sexually since he was 4 and has recently been expelled from school for violent behavior and inappropriate sexual conduct? Al admits he inappropriately touched Sherie-Lynn when she was just 2 weeks old, but says that was it, and says he never touched Parker. But as Dr. Phil digs deeper, he uncovers physical abuse and three other possible victims. Will a lie detector test settle the matter once and for all? Sherie-Lynn’s brother, Marty, doesn’t know what to believe. How will he feel about his father babysitting his own kids after the results of the polygraph test? And, what happens next for Parker? Join the discussion.

Find out what happened on the show.

Proscecution- he will get what he deserves..

Quote From: baker167

My question is, why is this man not in jail?  If he has already admitted to sexually deviant behavior with Sherie-Lynn, then why is he allowed to even be near any other children?

I DO BELIEVE THAT THE LIE DETECTOR TEST IS SOMETHING THAT MAY BE USED IN A COURT OF LAW. AND IF AND WHEN DOC PHIL GETS A POSITIVE ADMITTANCE TO SOMELTHING THAT TOO WILL BE ENOUGH FOR COURT.

04/25 Confronting Grandpa

          My grandfather or fatherr never did what he did to me. My brother had that turn. I always said that I did not want that happening to my daughter. Unfortunatly that did not happen, for all the times and effort I put in trying to protect her. That does not mean that I am taking his side NO. What he did was very disgraceful especially knowing that it was his family. For knowing what happened to my daughter she is very upset and hopes that this man burns in hell.

confronting grandpa

Quote From: grateful46

I saw the previews and it breaks my heart what this family is going through.How can a person be so evil that they would denoy the truth to their own daughter.I haven't seen the show yet,not to sure I'm looking forward to this one but regardless I won't miss it either.I am from the place where all the abuse came public,best thing that ever happened,but the courts only dealt with the churches and I taught their is another that is just as sacred as the church,the home!I have more respect for someone who accepts responsibilty and faces up to the truth,at least then people can heal.I decided not to read the message boards yet or write anything about it because I want to see the show first.But when I do I will add a post,thanks mary
 My grandchildren 3 of them have been told by there mother not to tell anyone what their grandfather has done to them, so there isn't anything that can be done to stop him from hurting another child. Oh, their mother has another little girl by this marriage and she won't le him see that girl by himself , so what's up with that? I think in o many words she is admitting to herself she isn't going to take any chances with her. Is there anyone out there that can tell me what we can do?

CHILDHOOD SEXUAL ABUSE - VICTIMS AND PREPETRATORS

Child sexual abuse (1 in 3 girls and 1 in 7 boys) occurs among all groups of the population. It happens to children in both rural and urban areas and in all socioeconomic and educational levels, and across all racial and cultural groups.

There is no rule governing the age range between a victim and a perpetrator. Generally, children are sexually abused by adults who are related to them or known by them or their families.

 

Stop it Now! - Child Sexual Abuse Prevention

www.stopitnow.org helpline 1-888-PREVENT


Sexual abuse is forced, tricked, or coerced sexual behavior between a young person and an older person.

Child sexual abuse may consist of any one of the following acts:

1. Nudity 2. Disrobing 3. Genital exposure 4. Inappropriate kissing or fondling 6. Masturbation 7. Oral-genital contact 8. Child pornography 9. Digital penetration 10. Vaginal or anal intercourse



Acquaintance perpetrators are the most common abusers, constituting approximately 70-90% of all reported perpetrators. In sexual abuse cases committed against females, approximately one third to one-half of all perpetrators were related to the victim. Only about one-tenth of the abusers were related to their male victims. 


Hope it helps!

We should all watch our children

It is so sad, and it makes me angry, but this pedophile who does not deserve the name of grandpa and many more like him walking around like a neighbor ,friend or relative would stoop to such a level of hurting a little child.

 

Dr. Phil is bringing on the air what is hidden in our  closets and we occasionally hear about the priests,

the colonies like the one in Colorado to Dallas  or the  teacher or coach, the list goes on. so we should watch our children  and protect them but how do we do this without making them paranoid. 

 

God help  us.

04/25 Confronting Grandpa

Its makes me so sad to hear stories like this, because I was in this position once.  I am now a 32 year old mother of 5 children who was sexually molested by my grandfather at the age of 4-6 years old.  My mother was also too molested and just recently it came out in my mothers family that my grandfather touched his sister too.  I kept it a secret for about 11 years and finally came out and told my mother.  When I did tell her she comforted me, but then told me not to tell my grandmother cause it would break her heart.  So, because my mom asked me this I then kept it a secret and my mom never got me any type of help.  I had my first child, which was a girl and made it very clear and whispered to my grandpa that he would NEVER touch or hold my child ever.  About 5-6 years later he passed away.  My book was never closed, I really never got to face him and let him know that what he did was wrong.  If it was up to me he should of rotted in jail when I told my mom.  My grandma passed away about 2 years ago never knowing what he did to me, but it did just recently come out that it did indeed happen to not only me and my mom, but his sister too.  My book was never closed and I still to this day live with all the memories.  I had such a hard time with being married and majority men eventually remind me of him.  I feel terrible and the pain this family is going thru and my heart goes out to you guys!

Naughty Grandpa

Dr Phil

I feel as a Grandparent this person is really SICK in the head and should be punished. Children (even Grand children) are a Gift from God and we should cherish them NOT do NASTY things to them as they are our future. If we as a society don't put a stop to this who knows what our Grand parents will be doing next to our children. We need a the judicial system to be more hard on this. not just slapping their hands and getting them treatment something more severe needs to be done. These Sex Offenders need to be put on a island, and have food and water shipped to them once a month. They also need to be educated on how much what they do to a child messes them up in later life. There is nothing like a child to love and care for. Dr. Phil I know in my heart that when you and Robin become grandparents this will also be a sore subject with both of you.

04/25 Confronting Grandpa

Sorry for the faults in my message but my English is not so good. The same hapned with me and my child. I was 9 when a man from the same village starded to do it with me. It takes me lots off years before I told it. As a matter affect untill the day that I found out that the husband off my sister did it with my little girl when she was 7 years old. I allways protected her for outsiders, because I hoped that she never have to deal with a crime like this. Even with her dad I was looking that everything was normal.

But my fear came out.

At the age off 14 my dauchter realised what her uncle did to her and thought that all the guild was from herself because he asced to play a game together and she agreed. She tryed a suïcide with over 70 tablets. Something in me tells me to call the docter and the hospital removed all the tablets. First she was verry angree at me that she was still alive but later she had the courage to thell me what my sister's husband did to her. Still believing that she was guilty. She asked me to promised never tell too anywone. Finally I said yes but inside I would kill him. He touched my precious girl, my beloved diamond, my princces. From that day I become a nive into my heart. My daughter accepted the therapie I propossed to give all off tis a place and to gonna realise that she have no guilt on this pervert game. The 2 centers told me that my daugther was telling the trught. But the pain was staying in me. I faild by her protection as mother. A few years later I told my sister that her husband abussed my dauchter and that she must protected her 2 children. Instead she told me that everything was a big lie and my daugther had a big fantasy. She also said that the direction off the centers for therapy was wrong to believe that story. From that day she refused to be my sister and when her children tell her a story, like my girl, she never gonna believe hem. She protect her husband as was he a saint. And everybody with the sam story is sick in her eyes.

That I did'n it go to the police is because the docter said that such investigation will break her more than allready was done.

My daughter forgive me that I told my sister, but from now on she don't wanna talk about it anymore.

She's adult now and telling me that she's over it to go forward with her life. I'm blessed with that lovely. honnest, peacefull heart from her. But I think that a mother never can forget what's happened to the most beautifull gift from God's hand. A CHILD. And a smile from a child is making you realise that you are living. Sorry for the story on this page, but I'm trying to move on and hope that this message will help me by that.

I also hope that more and more people gonna believe that it's happening with 1 at 3 children.

Support them and just be there for the victems. With a lot of love because it's break's them. Friendly greetings
