          September 08, 2009

          Dr. Phil speaks with two moms struggling to parent their daughters. What is causing one mom’s lack of affection for her little girl? And what would cause a teen to physically attack her mother? Dr. Phil digs down to discover what is in the way of healthy and loving mother/daughter relationships.

          Breaking the Cycle

          In Dr. Phil’s “How to Be a Better Parent” series, one guest struggled more than the others to change her relationship with her child. Tammie was frustrated and annoyed with her 11-year-old daughter, Davia, and didn’t know why. She says she often found it difficult to even want to hug her. When she captured a fight with her daughter on home video, Dr. Phil told Tammie her behavior crossed the line.

          What is causing Tammie to feel this way about her child?

          Violent Teen

          Tami says for the past seven years she’s been controlled, manipulated and abused by her 17-year-old daughter, Katie, who has hit, bit, punched, slapped and kicked her during their confrontations. Tami says she no longer feels safe in her own home. Katie says she’s been mad for a long time and can’t take another day living with her mother. What is at the root of Katie’s rage?

          “What you’re seeing now is a full-blown tantrum.”
