(Original Air Date: 11/30/07) It's Ask Dr. Phil and Robin Day! From a Dancing with the Stars hunk to a reformed wild child, they answer all kinds of questions. First up, Derren says he's allergic to his girlfriend, Ana. Every time they see each other, he breaks out in hives, gets itchy eyes and suffers migraines. Is breaking up their only solution? Next, 25 million people watched Abercrombie & Fitch model, Albert Reed, cha cha his way to the top on Dancing with the Stars. How is he coping with his newfound fame? Then, partying all night on the beach, girls, drinking ... This kind of spring break may be the biggest dream for a teenage boy, but it's a mother's worst fear. Penny says no way is her 17-year-old son going on a spring break trip. Her husband says what's the big deal? What do Dr. Phil and Robin think? And, Kristin says her wild days are long gone, but the four tattoos she embellished her body with are a constant reminder of her past. How can she accept what she calls her "tramp stamp" and move forward? Plus, go behind the scenes and learn how Dr. Phil is produced, and it caused a sensation on YouTube, now don't miss the mom anthem performed for the first time live on TV! Join the discussion.

Allergies

One common irritant is laundry soap; she mentioned changing a lot of things, including her clothes, but if she is washing her new clothes in the same deteregent, maybe that is a problem.  Anyway, it would be a cheap, easy thing to try to see if that works.

Tatoo Lady

The woman with the tatoos, her body language appeared to me that she knew exactly what she was doing, that she just wanted a 'freebie' to get her tatoos removed.  What person in the USA doesn't know about laser tatoo removal?

You're not alone

Quote From: lab1012

              Dear Dr.Phil and Robin,  

                                                                  I have tried for years to loss wight and I have done everything under the sun. Including seeing a diet doctor for a year and never losing a pound. I'm also eating the same food as my diabetic son.I'm the only one who has not lost a pound. In fact I think I have put on a few. I need help and I ride a bike for 30 mins every other day. What can I do? I hate trying so hard and get know where. Can you help me feel better about myself. Lab1012

You're not alone, Lab1012.  I'm in the same boat as you.  I count all my calories every day, allowing only 1100-1300 per day, weight all my food portions, jog/speed walk 2 miles per day, do crunches on my exercise ball, work all night at a factory where I walk around all night (another 2 miles), have cut way down on sugar/refined foods; nothing!  If it doesn't get any better in January I'm going to the doctor to have my thyroid checked.  If that's not it then I don't know what.

I turned out OK

Quote From: yakyak

Dr. Phil, you told the mother of that boy who wanted to go to spring break that she would know if he misbehaved.  I can tell you that is not always so.  I did things that my mother knew about. 

 

I think he is too young to be involved in that kind of lifestyle, even if it's only for a week.  I think you are wrong to encourage a child to be around that kind of "party". 

 

 

 

If she doesn't let him go, he's going to break away from her next year at college anyhow, and for the rest of his life he'll remember how he didn't get to go on vacation with the rest of his friends.  I did some really stupid stuff when I was in my late teens and early 20's, but at least my parents let me go on the Senior Trip to Florida.  I can still remember how much fun that was, and if they had not let me go, I would still remember how bad I felt to be left behind.  After partying, drinking, getting involved with some unsavory people, I am 36 years old, healthy, have a good job, and was able to build a house last year. 

 

She needs to trust that her son will make some wise choices in life and lighten up on him.  He looks like a good kid anyhow; he looked a lot more mature than I was at that age.

Let's put it  this way.  I am very sure that Robin would NOT allow Dr. Phil to go to those kind of parties.   There is never a good age to attend those kind of parties.  Just my opinion.

Quote From: anders1ca

After she has had a good shower to get rid of the cosmetics the itch will be gone.

After all he did not itch while he was training and dancing.  What is the big deal?

 He said any physical contact with her, even dancing, made him itch. The only time he didn't itch during the massage session when he didn't know she was touching him. If she were wearing her usual cosmetics while she massaged him, that, most likely, isn't the issue. Maybe he's got some unresovled, subconscious issue with her that's causing his itching. Maybe his issue is sexual. Maybe he feels guilty that they're having sex outside of marriage. And, maybe it's some other issue. Resolve the issue, and maybe he'll quit itching.

This show has not been aired before. The reason why I know is because I was apart of the audience last month. This is the first time this show will be aired.
What was it like, being in the audience?

You survived, but you should have learned

Apparently the Natalie Holloway story of a young women who had CHAPERONES and still ended up drinking (underage) and dead is not enough for American parents.

 

A teen will survive not going away to a distant place to drink, party, act wild and swim. S/he is welcome to go when s/he's paying her own way and on her own. But until that time, it is the duty of the parents NOT TO BE FRIENDS with their children, but to use their brains and do what is best for their teens.

 

You may have survived your stupid years (I did, too), but knowing what I know, I am WELL AWARE that I was LUCKY (just as you were). Not everyone gets lucky. I have LEARNED from my careless, dangerous behavior and I will not GAMBLE with the life of my child. As adults, that's our JOB to learn from our own mistakes and help manage our teens lives better (so they can fly when they're adults on their own).

 

Why not give a kid a loaded gun? It's not your child's actions that should worry parents when these kids are on "spring break." It's the behavior and actions of OTHERS that you (or your teen) cannot control when they are on "spring break." There are too many DANGEROUS variables.

 

If my child wants to be STUPID and take huge risks when she's on her own, so be it. There is nothing I can do about it. But UNTIL THAT TIME, it's up to me to be a responsible parent, not a friend.

 

Nobody will die from not going on spring break. It's not a right of passage. It's a costly and often dangerous gamble with a teen's life. Parents can be creative by planning vacations and taking along their child's friend/s. They can give them space alone by a pool, allow them to eat alone in the hotel restaurant, etc. There doesn't need to be full privacy, drugs, alcohol and sex. THAT is not what spring break should be about, but sadly that is what it has become.

 

Smarten up parents. Be a parent, not a friend!

11/30 Ask Dr. Phil and Robin

Quote From: littleoldme

When my then 16 year old daughter in the 1970's wanted to go to see Pink Floyd in concert, I said no.  I heard all about the awful bands and what they did like eating heads off snakes and they dressed like demons.  I was concerned for her.  However, to this day she reminds me that I kept her from having a dream of a lifetime.  Her boyfriend was supposed to take her in a limo and everything.  I think she hated me for it in her young years and understands now that she has a son.  However, she said Pink Floyd was not like all the other bands.  They didn't do weird things and just played and sang good music (music to her ears).  Maybe I was wrong in not investigating more thoroughly, but I felt it was better to be safe and not even be in a crowd situation as that alone can be dangerous.  I sort of know how she feels except I never had the opportunity to go hear Elvis or now in my old age Alan Jackson.  I'm sure it was harder for her having the opportunity dashed.   Jean Gorney
Back then, those crowds could  be really dangerous, even deadly. I remember, in 1980, people getting trampled by the crowd at a Cincinatti concert venue. They had "festival" rather than reserved seat tickets. Meaning they could sit whereever they wanted. Too many people trying, all at one time, to get the "best" seats. And, people being trampled to death. To prevent further such deaths, "festival" seating was banned.

Why would someone's Christian friend say mean things to them about having a tattoo? Aren't Christians supposed to be nice and not judge people? And what about people who get cross tattoos? What do Christians think about them? I'm sure you'll say I'm "going to h-e-youknowwhere" but Christians are some of the most hypocritical people on earth.
