          June 16, 2011

          Parents, are you worried your son or daughter’s frequent nights out on the town might be more than harmless fun? Or, is your child’s fondness for shopping breaking your bank account? Dr. Phil has strong words for two 20-somethings with serious addictions.


          Party Girl
          Layla, 20, has crashed four vehicles while drunk driving, and amazingly, has walked away without a scratch. She dropped out of college to indulge in her party lifestyle and was rushed to the E.R. after a night of mixing drugs and alcohol. She was so high, she tried to jump out of the moving car on the way to the hospital. 

          “I have a lot of partying left in me.”  



          A Reality Lesson
          Layla says her parents treat her like a kindergartner, complete with a behavior chart at home where she earns happy and sad faces based on her actions. Dr. Phil has a reality check for her mother, Kressa, and her parenting choices. Plus, two young women have sobering messages for Layla. Will she listen before it’s too late?

          “Everyone was pronounced dead on the scene, as well as myself.”



          Josh, 24, says he’s addicted to shopping and has acquired nearly $100,000 in debt ” all to maintain his image as an up-and-coming recording artist. Josh’s mother, Maureen, says she’s paid off $40,000 worth of her son’s debt, only for him to rack up more. She’s tired of bailing out her son.

          “I do want to be looked up to and idolized.”
