          “My Childless Sister Is Trying To Steal My Grandchildren From My Son and Me”

          April 07, 2016

          14105 title

          Maria and Troy claim their life is full of yelling, screaming and raging acts of violence caused by their “disrespectful, out-of-control,” 16-year-old daughter. The parents say their daughter started smoking when she was 10, sneaking out the house when she was 11 and by the time she turned 14, they say they were at their wits’ end and sent her to a boarding school for children in crisis. Now, instead of “sneaking out,” they claim their daughter walks out the front door late at night and doesn’t return until the next morning. Maria and Troy claim their daughter parties, drinks and does drugs all night with her older friends, whom they have never met.

          Their daughter insists she’s not a bad kid, that she’s just a normal teenager. She says she loves her parents — but that they need to step up and be better parents and spend more time with their kids.

          The parents asked the show for help by giving their daughter the opportunity to speak with Dr. Phil — find out what happened that shocked everyone. Can Dr. Phil help these parents regain control of their daughter?
