Recalling the days when he looked up to his father for advice, he remembers Dr. Phil's words, “Just to have fun and not to worry about what people think." Dr. Phil added, “I don’t care what someone wants to say if it’s negative. If they want to hang out and be positive, great."
Wondering whether Dr. Phil has a hand on music, the son says, “He can’t clap on the beat or play the radio." But he sure does have good taste in music and enjoys listening to them. When Dr. Phil was asked if he prefers coming to his son's shows, Jordan was all proud and consented that his father is present in his plays.
