“I Cannot Leave My House Because I Fear I Will Die”

Due to her extreme agoraphobia, Kirstie says she has only ventured outside her home further than her mailbox one time in the last 14 months, and that was via ambulance to the hospital. Kirstie says she is confined to her bedroom for 22 hours a day because she believes she will die if she leaves it for longer than just a few minutes. But that’s not all; Kirstie also says she needs someone to watch her 24/7 so she doesn’t die. Kirstie claims her mother’s parenting is the root cause of her debilitating anxiety. Find out what caused a serious “anxiety attack” when Kirstie allowed Dr. Phil cameras to document her daily life. Plus, see what happens when Kirstie confronts her mother for the first time about her claim that she may have caused Kristie’s agoraphobia.

"Our 14-Year-Old Habitual Runaway Daughter is Being Repeatedly Harbored By Her 18-Year-Old Boyfriend!"

Jody and Mike say they can no longer parent their out of control 14-year-old daughter, Michelle.

The parents claim Michelle is doing drugs and drinking alcohol, repeatedly getting picked up by police, and hanging out with older boys. They also claim Michelle is a habitual runaway and has run away from home at least 10 times this year. Michelle says if her parents would just treat her like an adult, she would have no need to run away. During the summer, Michelle’s parents claim she disappeared for five days before being located at her 18-year-old boyfriend, Paul’s, house. Paul says Michelle is the love of his life and plans on marrying her. Paul says Michelle’s parents better get used to having him around because he’s not going anywhere. So what would it take to keep Michelle from running away? Can these parents possibly accept Paul and move forward?

See what happens in part 2.

Bad Parenting or Bad Teen? Who’s Really to Blame?

BeVee and Steve say they are on constant high alert as they never know when their 15-year-old daughter, Taylor, will be triggered into a violent outburst.

They say these outbursts are like uncaging a rabid animal, as Taylor will sometimes punch holes in walls and hit her mother. Taylor says she has absolutely no control over her outbursts and blames her parents, particularly her mother, for much of her violent behavior. Taylor says BeVee is her “trigger” and that if her mother left her alone, she wouldn’t be so mad all the time. BeVee and Steve say things are currently so bad that they are terrified any form of punishment may send their daughter spiraling. Steve says right now, his only option is to physically restrain Taylor, and admits to one time resorting to hitting her with a belt! These parents wonder if maybe they are doing something wrong and contributing to this house of chaos. Dr. Phil weighs in -- don’t miss it!
