          Is This Father's Extreme Parenting to Blame for His Daughters' Disorders?

          September 08, 2015


           
          Sisters Rylie, 23, and Lenae, 26, claim their father, Leonard, was extremely physically and verbally abusive during their childhood and that they lived in constant fear of him — allegations he absolutely denies. They also claim their mother, Susan, did not protect them from him. 
           
          Rylie claims the alleged abuse was so damaging that she believes it’s the cause of her diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder.
           
          Lenae says the many years of alleged verbal abuse have led to self-loathing and even an eating disorder. 
           
          Leonard admits to having a tough disciplinary style, but refutes his daughters accusations — even saying they’ve blown everything out of proportion.
