          “We Believe Our Mother Blames Us for Our Sister’s Death!”

          January 05, 2016


          Debbie says on December 4, 2009, when she didn’t hear back from her 16-year-old daughter, Kaylene, who was out running errands after gymnastics, she went out looking for her and stumbled upon a parent’s worst nightmare: Kaylene’s car had lost control on black ice and hit a tree, and she was pronounced dead at the scene.

          Six years later, her family says instead of holding each other closer in their grief, they have been falling further apart. Debbie’s daughter, Shaunase, and son, Justin, believe their mother not only refuses to move past the tragedy, but also blames them for their sister’s death, which Debbie denies. Shaunase says her relationship with Debbie is so strained that an argument escalated to Debbie trying to hit her with a car!

          Debbie vehemently denies trying to hit Shaunase with her car but admits her pain is still horrible and getting worse, and she says Shaunase and Justin don’t understand her grief. She claims they’ve been cruel and insensitive and don’t allow her to spend time with her grandchildren. Can Dr. Phil help this family heal?

          Then, actor John Stamos joins the show to preview Dr. Phil’s guest role on the Fox comedy “Grandfathered.
