          What Happened to Tempest?: Standing Up to Mean Girls

          June 24, 2015

          Yesterday, in Part 1 of a special series, seven teenage girls, each with a different story about bullying, were picked to spend three days together in The Dr. Phil House. Today, Dr. Phil continues his work as he sits down with the girls’ mothers — how much do they really know about their daughters? Plus, don’t miss Dr. Phil’s must-hear advice for standing up to “mean girls” — and how victims of bullying can take back their power.

          The Retreat Continues

          Dr. Phil talks to 13-year-old Katelyn, who says she was wrongly accused of bullying a former friend, who later jumped off a tower to her death. Katelyn and another girl were charged with aggravated stalking, but the charges were ultimately dropped.

          “You certainly are not responsible for that girl’s death … But you were a factor in that girl’s life.”

          Next, Dr. Phil sits down with the teens’ mothers. He has some tough questions for Tempest’s mother, Chanell, who in Part 1 admitted she didn’t really know what was going on in her daughter’s life. She revealed wondered whether Tempest, 16, was having a relationship with a 47-year-old man. “I just kind of push everything under the rug,” Chanell said.

          Dr. Phil also talks to 15-year-old Katie’s mother, Lisa, who says she is terrified of her daughter because of her violent and out-of-control behavior. But is Lisa’s parenting part of the problem?

          “Where are you when she’s ‘running the streets,’ as you call it?”

          Dr. Phil reads an anonymous letter sent in about Katie and Lisa. You can’t change what you don’t acknowledge.”

          Tune in to see more of Dr. Phil’s conversation with the mothers. How can they help their daughters move forward? Plus, tensions rise when someone breaks a house rule!

          Dealing with Bullies

          As the retreat comes to a close, Dr. Phil sits down with three of the teens: Hannah, Lily and Hanna, all of whom say they have been victims of bullying and are struggling to move forward.

          How can victims of bullying move forward? “It isn’t what they say; it’s what you say to yourself about what they say,” Dr. Phil says.

          Dr. Phil has a special offer of help for Katie. How will she react? And, get updates on how all the teens have been doing since the retreat!
