Before you're allowed to have kids, you should be required to watch a dozen or so episodes of Dr. Phil to see how families (which are usually portrayed as completely idyllic by the media) can become dysfunctional, dangerous, & downright disgusting.

You should be required to pass genetic standards so disgusting litters like that don't exist

Dr. Phil might not be the best source around for... well, anything at all.

I have a real problem with slavery.

If somebody has so much control over you that they can tell you what you must watch before having sex clearly they have too much ownership over your life.

Btw, this comment relates to Obamacare.

On the contrary, pseudoscientists like Dr Phil need to be banned.

I think Dr Phil should be regulated as a controlled substance. That piece of shit, quacky hack is televised poison.

Never seen it, is he a fraud?
I suspect for example Nye the science guy to be a fraud but that's a different topic.

He's not precisely a fraud, since he does have a PhD in psychology (I think), but he's in the business of sensationalism and pretends that it's psychology. When he's an invited guest on other shows, his reactions and opinions are gleefully ill-informed and he passes them off as 'expert' because of the PhD, basically using the 'Dr.' honorific to sell nonsense.

No, but a parent license similar to a driver's license would be an idea.
Aside from classes how to be a good parent, check for mental health, drug screening etc. No crack babies, please.

Would not work. Most people do not recognize themselves in those scenarios.
