Kim claims her teenage daughter, Taylor, thrives on attention -- any way she can get it. She claims Taylor has stolen her credit cards, spent thousands of dollars on lavish shopping sprees for her friends and says she frequently lies on social media, including posts about being pregnant, dropping out of school, getting arrested and even about gruesome suicide attempts. Kim claims Taylor is obsessed with social media, and says she’s invited strangers, including an older man, to stay at their home.

Kim says her life revolves around worrying about her daughter, and she fears that mental illness may be the cause for her outrageous behavior. trou

Taylor’s older sister, Paige, says she thinks her sister is just “spoiled rotten.” What does Taylor say?

Plus, Kim’s husband says he’d “rather go fishing” than help parent his teen daughters.  Don’t miss Dr. Phil’s reaction.
