No he doesn't! I would fight tooth and nail to keep my child away from such an angry, impulsive human being. At least Shawn never acted like a baby, or played dirty like Phil, Shawn acted out due to other people's constant interference. What parent would stand back and allow somebody else, especially the Kiriakes,to take their child out of the country, never to be seen again??? I loved it when Max put Philip in his place. Shelle was more then willing to work out a visitation schedule, Phil wanted complete control over the situation and Claire, which is proven by his actions to take her out of the country, this guy should not have custody of Claire, he is too unstable IMO.
