Twenty-one-year-old Ashlan says she’s “pissed off” at her mother and sister for claiming she’s a bad mom. She says she’s trying to do her best to raise her 14-month-old son and that they need to back off.

Grace, Ashlan’s sister, claims Ashlan would rather party and hunt for ‘sugar daddies’ online than take care of her baby. She claims that Ashlan dances in strip clubs – not to pay for diapers or formula – but to embarrass her family. And, Pam, the women’s mother, says she has been “raising” her grandson because she claims Ashlan ignores and neglects him and goes for days without seeing him – all accusations Ashlan denies.
In the video above, Dr. Phil tells Ashlan that it’s time to step up and take responsibility for her actions.
“You have a choice to make: you can either come in here and pout, and be immature and storm out of here, or you can say, ‘You know what? My life isn’t working worth a damn. I’m demeaning myself with what I’m doing, I’m neglecting my son, I’m abusing my mother, I’m not getting anywhere that I want to be toward a goal, and for some reason, I wound up here in front of Dr. Phil,’” he says.
