          A Turbulent Teen Opens Up about His Home Life

          December 2, 2015

          Jennifer admits she feels ready to give up on her 13-year-old son. She says he’s angry and violent, starts fires, threatens to kill people and claims he sees vampires who tell him what to do. Jennifer claims her son is so out of control that she, her boyfriend and their two children sleep in a locked bedroom for safety.  He "is making our life a living hell," she says. “My son has brought me to a breaking point. I can’t wait until he’s 18-years-old, so he can move out of my house.”

          In the video above, Jennifer's son shares what his life is like, and Jennifer reacts. Dr. Phil has a tough question for this exhausted mother of three: "Are you abandoning this child?"
