          "My Transgender Son is Ruining His Life!"

          October 20, 2016

          Sheila wrote in to the show seeking Dr. Phil’s help with her 17-year-old transgender teen, whom she refers to as her son “Joe.”

          Her teen says she is transitioning from male to female and identifies as Arianna. Sheila says that Arianna is so focused on transitioning into a female that the teen has neglected school and other priorities. Arianna and best friend Jodeci claim that Sheila has abused Arianna ever since she started identifying as transgender. Will Sheila accept Dr. Phil’s advice to work toward a healthy relationship with her child?
