          17 and Out of Control

          January 25, 2012

          Are you struggling to tame your rebellious teen? Chris and Barbara say their 17-year-old daughter, Courtney, is out of control! The teen proudly admits she bullies, steals, drinks and does drugs and is consumed with anger. Can Dr. Phil set her straight? Parents: If you know a teen who’s heading down a dangerous path, this is one show you can’t afford to miss!

          “I’m Crazy When I’m Angry”
          Courtney’s hot temper has gotten her into hot water on numerous occasions, including seven suspensions, an expulsion, five alternative school assignments and an arrest for punching her school principal — for waking her up in class. She also admits to being a bully.

          “I just love myself … I’m just amazing.”

          At Their Wits’ End
          Chris and Barbara say they’ve tried to discipline Courtney by taking away her cell phone and grounding her, but she still disregards their authority and continues to lash out, including threatening to kill Barbara.

          “I feel angry, and confused and sad.”

          “I Can Stop Whenever I Want, But I Just Don’t Want To”
          Courtney says the only time she’s truly happy is when she’s consuming drugs and alcohol, and she often stays out partying until 5 a.m. Learn what happened one night when Courtney was drunk and blacked out. And, find out what Chris and Barbara say is their biggest fear.

          What’s Dr. Phil’s theory about Courtney’s behavior?

          Is It Too Late For Courtney to Turn Her Life Around?
          Dr. Phil tells Chris and Barbara how they can help their daughter. Will Courtney agree to their plan?

          “We’re done caving.”
