Parents, pay attention: In the United States, one in six girls will become a teen mom, and oftentimes, the baby’s father gets a free pass and is not held to the same responsibilities in raising the child. Dr. Phil reveals the cold, hard facts about teen pregnancy.
A Family in Turmoil
Eighteen-year-old Taten has no job, no phone, no car and no permanent place to live. What he does
have is a 3-month old daughter with Autumn, 16, and a second child on the way, according to another teen. Although he cheated on her, Autumn says she still wants Taten in her life. Autumn’s mother, Michelle, wishes Taten would “drop off the face of the Earth” for what he did to her daughter. Taten meets Dr. Phil.
