Dr. Phil Advises Mom to 'Take Girl Toys Away from Boys'

Dr. Phil advises a parent whose son likes to play with girls toys and wear girls clothing to “take the girl things away, and buy him boy toys” on his show’s “Ask Dr. Phil” segment. Robbie tells Dr. Phil that her 5-year-old son likes to play with Barbies and likes to wear girl’s clothing, which she doesn’t think is normal. In the segment, she asks the talk show host how to deal with his behavior.

Dr. Phil advises a parent whose son likes to play with girls toys and wear girls clothing to “take the girl things away, and buy him boy toys” on his show’s “Ask Dr. Phil” segment.

Robbie tells Dr. Phil that her 5-year-old son likes to play with Barbies and likes to wear girl’s clothing, which she doesn’t think is normal. In the segment, she asks the talk show host how to deal with his behavior.

"There are developmental stages in kids and it is not unusual, particularly for young boys, to experiment and get stuck on certain stimulus items," he says. “"This is not a precursor to your son being gay.”

Dr. Phil, who recently has increased his support for gay and lesbian teens, particularly when it comes to bullying in schools, then suggests that the solution is to take the girls toys away from her son.

"Direct your son in an unconfusing way. Don't buy him Barbie dolls or girl's clothes. You don't want to do things that seem to support the confusion at this stage of the game ... Take the girl things away, and buy him boy toys.

"Support him in what he's doing, but not in the girl things."
