Dr. Phil show today re: domestic violence

Ok, I'm not a big Dr Phil fan, but I record his show each day and watch a few times a week.

I just finished watching today's show on domestic violence, and it literally brought tears to my eyes. I grew up in a house with domestic violence; my father mostly used emotional/mental abuse, and sometimes physical abuse when he'd hit my brothers.

Anyway, at the end of the show Dr Phil's wife Robin spoke about a foundation she has started and today she "unveiled" a new website and even a smart phone app, to help educate people on domestic violence, and especially for teens/young people who may not realize the difference between domestic violence and love. The website is broken down into 3 separate sections, geared towards different age groups.



She said the name of her program is "Aspire". The educational material and app are free, they said. It also includes information on how to safely exit an abusive relationship, and information on where to go and what to do.

I don't like or dislike Robin, but she explained exactly why she started this program, it really hit home with me.

Anyone else here see today's show? What do you think??

Didn't see the show, but think it's great! Society as a whole needs to be more aware and feel more of a sense to do something about domestic violence, young ppl. especially.

I did not see the show


I can not remember the name of it it's a form of domestic violence among teens an young adults some communities an schools are doing programs for all jr high and high school students to prevent it an I think it should be a required program in every jr high and high school in the country. possibly the churches could get on the band wagon with this too.
