Have your children gone from little angels to kids gone wild? Are they whiney, tantrum-throwing, feet-stomping, door-slamming, spoiled and entitled? Well, good news, Mom and Dad! Dr. Phil launches his parenting boot camp and teaches parents how to take back control and live in peace for the very first time. Meet four families who say they live in chaos and can’t take it anymore. Tammie says her 11-year-old daughter is stubborn, uncooperative and annoying, and she finds herself with no desire to hug her. How can she rediscover that mother/daughter bond? And, Janice says her 11-year-old son is a spoiled little baby whose tantrums are so obnoxious, she’s ready to throw in the towel. Next, Tiffiny and Ron say their two oldest daughters make them regret becoming parents. They say living with their 14-year-old is like living with Hannibal Lecter, and the 10-year-old won’t stop lying. What are they doing wrong? And, Laureen is a single mom who says her 16-year-old daughter is so out of control, she could be headed for jail. How can these families regain control and find peace? Plus, see exciting updates on two mother/son pairs who left their madhouse for The Dr. Phil House last year. Remember the child who slapped his mother in the face? How are they doing one year later? Share your thoughts here.

Find out what happened on the show.

These homes need values period. If not christian at least something. Too many children are raised with no values whatsoever. No wonder so many get into trouble.

Tammie

 

I found it hard to believe that she didn't see that she was the problem with her daughter. When a child is always following you wanting a hug or other interaction with her mother she is not getting the love she needs. The video showing her with her other children you can see the glaring differences in the affection. If her dad has rejected her the last thing she needed was her mother doing the same thing. Hopefully she will be able to get the help she needs to turn her around. I will keep her in my prayers.

"Schizophrenia on the upswing"

As the aunt of a lovely girl who suffers from schizophrenia, I really hate to hear Dr Phil, a psychologist for heavens sake, make jokes about this devastating disease. Worse, he implied today that it was caused by bad parenting. It's caused by a hormonal imbalance in the brain, Dr. Phil, I think you know this.

I do not understand some of these mothers

I really have a hard time understanding some of these mothers. How can you reject your child and think they won't react to that? What is this child suppossed to do? Sit in a chair and be invisable until the "mom" thinks she is able to love her. As a parent with two kids(with different dads), I can't even begin to understand this woman. Why are you blaming the child and withholding affection from her for looking like her father. You chose to have a child with this man. You do not get to punish this child for your decision. The problem is not with the child but with the way the mother treats the child. As for having overweight children, The parents control the food purchases for the house. Maybe if you bought healthier foods and taught the child more about making healthy food choices then child would be able to lose the weight and it might affect other problems as well. When are these "parents" going to realise that they are teaching their children how to behave and when they act like they don't care, the child is not worth their time, or make bad choices it affects the children? These kids need love and support. Not someone telling them that they are not good enough no matter how hard they try. Parents look at your own behavior before you blame your child for your bad parenting.

It's Child Abuse

   I truly hope that Dr. Phil is able to truly get through to the first mom on this show, because her behavior to her daughter is nothing short of child abuse. It's neglect, plain and simple. To deny a child love, comfort, and acceptance is far worse than not supplying a roof over their head.

   Children have enough issues feeling judged and unaccepted from their peers, to feel this from your parents is SO unacceptable. If this is not turned around in mighty way, mighty fast, this girl is going to fall for the first creep that shows her attention and whispers sweet nothings in her ear.

    I hope we have a follow-up with them, because this little girl will be haunting my thoughts.
