Parents Face Off With 15-Year-Old Daughter Who They Say Acts Out Of Control
Dr. Phil
A father confronts his teen daughter about her behavior and lack of willingness to change. And, Dr. Phil offers the parents advice for what they should do with her moving forward.
Dr. Phil uses the power of television to tell compelling stories about real people.
The Dr. Phil show provides the most comprehensive forum on mental health issues in the history of television. For over a decade, Dr. McGraw has used the show's platform to make psychology accessible and understandable to the general public by addressing important personal and social issues. Using his top-rated show as a teaching tool, he takes aim at the critical issues of our time, including the "silent epidemics" of bullying, drug abuse, domestic violence, depression, child abuse, suicide and various forms of severe mental illness.

    He reminds me so much of my father, I love my father with all my heart. I can’t imagine treating my parents like this girl does. I’m so lucky to have wonderful amazing parents and so is this girl but she’s to stupid to know it.

    Kick her out of the house if she won’t put any effort in changing and let her go to jail!! That is probably the only way she will learn!!

    I don’t like how the parents act ! Like it’s a bad feeling and there’s gotta be a reason she’s acting out !

    • RashaeBeauty

      These are the most caring parents in my opinion. The daughter just thinks it’s fun to be a fake gang member, break them law, and fake pregnancies to get attention from her peers and get out of the consequences. She needs to be taught self respect

  • WhizzLegend

    I promise you she will realize how lucky she is to have parents like hers once they’re long gone

    I wished I had parents like hers who cared and loved me like they love her. I agree she's a very lucky girl to have parents like that. Some of us didnt have that she should be grateful.

    Something else is going on here behind the scenes. I really believe these parents are abusive, and playing the victim on tv.

    Just gonna say, the word "tantamount" is used to compare the relation of something to something else. you don't just say something is tantamount, you say it is tantamount to (insert something of the same seriousness). It's fine to have a wider vocabulary, but know the words you say and how to use them

    Dr phil handled this poorly

  • RiverPotato

    I never got the point of hiding a kids face if their parents are there because I mean if people know this girl's parents then they should most likely know her. Unless its a legal thing, in that case, nevermind this comment is pointless.

    In my opinion, any parent who says they love their child, but feels a need to expose their family business on national TV in the name of seeking help - that parent is showing where the real fault lies. And it's not with the child.

    Why has no one looking into the root of her actions?! No one asks her if something traumatic happened to her outside of the home.

    She's only 15 she probably has a lot of trauma and lashes out. She needs help and love and support not to go to jail. She seems very sad and probably feels completely alone.

    I enjoy this format much better than having the live studio audience. I think that their session should happen behind closed doors with as few people as possible so that people will be more apt to open up and communicate. Anyone else agree?

    What did she do??

  • Vidalion

    It is a good option, but no one who has watched more than a couple of these thinks that the response is going to be anything other than the Ranch for her and counseling for the parents.

    They show her lips, i can easily assume what she looks like. The most basic and default looking little girl ever. If they showed her face she would look like 90% of other little girls no one would know the difference.

    I feel for this girl so much, I became the same clamped up girl at the same age as her. I felt unloved, unseen and lost, and therefore I became angry, rebellious but mostly silent. I didn’t want to talk, I didn’t want to solve anything, I didn’t want to accept any love from my family. Simultaneously, that was the ONLY thing KNEW I really wanted in my heart, but I just couldn’t be that person then. I felt that I wasn’t physically able to communicate that, which added enormous stress. Shout out to any parents out there who’s in the same situation as my parents were. They did’t do anything wrong, and did everything they could to help, but sometimes you just gotta ride it out. Love to you all

  • NightStriker

    She don't even know why she mad

  • Bubbles

    i believe they are not handling it properly, she is exactly like me with the "i don't want to listen to you attitude" and from that stand point i get that but she needs someone who understands because she most absolutely has a motive if that could be abuse from parents or classmates or maybe she just doesn't like being pushed around and wants to just be her own person. I totally understand that but like she needs someone that gets that because if not then nothing is going to get fixed because the reason she doesn't have remorse is because she doesn't feel sorry for her actions for me personally through verbal and emotional abuse and neglect I lash out at my parents because I don't want to be pushed around by people who have hurt me and i don't like being put in a box, so in reality that girl needs better help and since the Dr Phil show clearly cannot provide said help i don't think this episode accomplished anything except made her embarrassed and made the parents embarrassed there has to be a reason for the way she acts it cant just be that she wants to something had to push her to that head space. and pushing her and restricting her even more isn't going to help at all, she is a minor and i believe that the way they trapped her there and didn't let her leave was a form of false imprisonment and therefore i'm sure she can sue and if she builds up a good enough case she will win. i don't know just thought i would share my thoughts as a misbehaving teen very similar to her.
