          "Dr. Phil, I Need Your Help Again: My Daughter is Hitchhiking and Train Hopping as a Portland Street Kid"

          June 06, 2016

          In 2011, Tammy came to Dr. Phil for help with what she called unleashing her “special brand” of anger on her then 15 and 13-year-old daughters, Tatiana and Tameeka — yelling and screaming at them and anyone else who got in her way.
          Since the show, Tammy says she has curbed her anger, but needs Dr. Phil’s help again!
          She says three years ago Tatiana, now 20, stopped going to school, so she gave her three choices — get a job, volunteer, or take a class – or she would have to move out. She says Tatiana took that as an eviction notice, left home, and has been living on the streets ever since. Now, Tammy wonders if it’s her fault that her daughter is homeless, hitchhiking and train hopping around the country.
          It’s been two years since Tammy has seen Tatiana, and three years since Tatiana has seen her younger sister, Tameeka. Don’t miss this emotional reunion as Dr. Phil brings this family together in an effort to heal the damage between a mother and daughter and reunite two sisters who miss each other.
