          Moms on the Verge, Part 2

          January 13, 2003

          Meet ordinary women who live with the fear that they’re going to hurt their children in a fit of uncontrollable rage. Dr. Phil tells moms what to do when they start to lose control. Plus, what you can do if you believe you’ve witnessed abusive behavior.

          See Part 1 of Moms on the Verge.

          Joanna, 27, is a single mother who is terrified at the fact that small things set her off. “It is the darkest secret. You can’t talk about anger and rage,” she says. “I feel like sometimes my son is actually afraid of me.”

           
          Michelle, 28, has two daughters. She accidentally gave one of them a bloody nose during a fit of rage. “There are times I just want to smack her hard because she is so ungrateful,” says Michelle. “I want [the rage] to end.”

           
          Lisa, 37, is a single mother with three children. “My rage is abusive, hurtful and scarring,” she says. “I feel like I’m on the edge every day.” She came on Dr. Phil because she wants to find another way to deal with her stress.
