          The Dark Side of Cheerleading

          August 29, 2003

          Cheerleading involves competition, peer pressure and acceptance … just like so many activities your kids may be involved in. Dr. Phil goes inside a world that can be touched by scandal, drugs and eating disorders.

          A School Controversy

          Kelly, (left), a senior at Quartz Hill High School, didn’t make the varsity cheerleading squad. Did the coach, Liz, (right)have a personal grudge against the teen and try to keep her off the team?

          View both sides of the story.

          Losing Self-Worth

          Kristi, 16, says she started using drugs, flunking out of school and stealing because she didn't make the cheerleading squad.

          Trying to Fit in

          Desiree says that trying to live up to the perfect image of being a cheerleader is at the root of her eating disorder.
