Dr. Phil sheds light on the dark and dangerous side of the Internet: Cyberbullying.
First, grieving mother Alicia tragically lost her 5-year-old son to drowning nearly three months ago. Ever since, she claims her former high school friend, Jessica, has been posting outrageous comments about her online — even accusing Alicia of being responsible for her son’s death. Jessica admits to making nasty comments about Alicia online but claims they were in retaliation. What does she say Alicia did to provoke her? Can these mothers stop the mudslinging and reach a truce?
Then, in October 2012, Carol’s 15-year-old daughter, Amanda, took her own life after the teen was cyberbullied by a man she met online. Carol shares her heartbreaking story with the nation — and offers words of wisdom to Alicia and Jessica. Will her story make an impact?
