          Reasons That Teen Girls Engage in Violence

          May 04, 2012

          Is your teenage daughter lashing out and you don’t know why? Dr. Phil shares the six reasons that teen girls engage in violence:

          • To gain status, defend their sexual reputation or defend against sexual harassment.
          • To express anger about sexual and/or physical abuse.
          • To gain control in the household.
          • For self-defense.
          • As a result of teacher labeling.
          • As a result of victimization and/or lack of opportunities for success.
