          Dr. Phil continues his exclusive jailhouse interview with Kelli Stapleton, a mother accused of trying to kill her severely autistic 14-year-old daughter, Issy. Kelli recently pleaded guilty to a felony charge of first-degree child abuse. Does she regret her actions that day? And, hear from Kelli’s best friends. Were there any warning signs that Kelli was reaching her breaking point?

          Catch up on what you missed in Part 1.

          Plus, find out how you can help Issy secure a healthy and productive future.

          More than 16 million kids in the United States are at risk for hunger each day. Fortunately, you can help. Visit Feeding America to find your local food bank. And, help Dr. Phil raise enough money for 10 million meals. Donate today!

          “If, by some miraculous twist of fate, you could walk out of here today, and go home, and take up managing her again, are you equal to that?”

          “Do you believe in forgiveness?”

          Tune in to hear how Issy is now!
