    Rick says, “It was just such a shock that I didn’t know how to deal with it.”

    The couple says they began supervising Robbie 24/7 and tried to find him a treatment facility placement. Then, says Kristin, Robbie threatened that if he didn’t get help that day – he would rape one of his siblings, “So we took him straight to the hospital.”

    Kristin and Rick say Robbie has been in treatment for the past year and is due to come home soon, and they don’t know what to do. Can Dr. Phil help?
