Bam Margera’s Parents Admit to Enabling His Self-Destructive Behavior in ‘Family Therapy With Dr. Jenn’ Sneak Peek

Time for some tough love? In Family Therapy With Dr. Jenn's Wednesday, May 11, episode, Bam Margera's parents painfully admit to enabling his reckless behavior, as seen in Us Weekly's exclusive sneak peek.

The VH1 series' preview clip shows the Jackass star, 36, sitting down with Dr. Jenn Mann, who does her best to convince his folks, April and Phil, that they need to toughen up when reacting to their son's inebriated shenanigans.

April somberly tells Phil, "We are both damage control, you and I, and honestly, if he doesn't have to pay the consequences for the s–t that he starts, he's gonna keep doing it, because he never has to clean it up."
