The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers reveal that Douglas Forrester (Henry Joseph Samiri) is struggling mentally and emotionally. His father, Thomas Forrester (Matthew Atkinson) has stressed the child out so much that he is having physical symptoms.
Should the little boy be seeing a counselor? It seems so or his mental health could be in danger, leading to long-term problems.
The B&B character, who is now considered a villain, put so much stress on his young son. He had him keep “PhoeBeth” a secret and lie about it. Thomas even got angry and said that Douglas wasn’t a hero, but a defiant little boy. It has all been too much for Douglas.
Bold And The Beautiful Spoilers – Douglas Forrester Has Tummy Troubles
On Monday’s episode, fans saw just how much Douglas is being affected by his father. All children want is to be loved by their parents. Unfortunately for Douglas, Thomas’ love and approval is always conditional. It is causing the child to have stress-related symptoms such as an upset stomach.
The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers suggest that Douglas is exhibiting other symptoms of stress. His confidence level is going down and when his father is around, he won’t automatically run up and give him a hug. His head lowers as he avoids eye contact.
Pretty soon, he might get headaches, increased illnesses and anxiety attacks. Children are not equipped to handle extreme stress for long periods of time, nor should they have to.
