          Kids Ask Dr. Phil and Robin

          July 14, 2004

          Remember when you were a kid and things seemed really overwhelming? Well, it’s the kids’ turn today to ask Dr. Phil and Robin for advice on coping with their hard times and family dilemmas.
          Overprotective Mom
          Teresa won’t let her 13-year-old daughter Ashlee go anywhere alone for fear that she will be kidnapped. Ashlee is fed up and sick of being treated like a baby.

          Should Teresa give Ashlee more freedom?

          See their follow-up.

          Has Teresa changed?

          Dr. Phil checks back in with Teresa and Ashlee.

          Spoiled Brat?
          Sean, 13, has a scooter, a drum set, computer and video games, and feels he deserves presents for doing chores. He even threatens to leave home when he doesn’t get his way. 

          Does Dr. Phil think Sean is spoiled?

          Beating the Odds
          John has survived 15 different foster homes, but feels he will never succeed because the odds are against him. He is surprised onstage by actress, foster care advocate, and former foster child Victoria Rowell.

          Victoria’s inspiring words and gifts for John.

          Granting a Wish
          Robin answers a letter about public criticism, and 8-year-old Ryan writes a touching letter to Dr. Phil. Dr. Phil makes Ryan’s dreams come true, and takes him for a ride in his Formula One Ferrari.

          See Ryan’s reaction. 

          The audience, all of whom are supporters of The Alliance for Children’s Rights, gets a chance to ask Dr. Phil their own parenting and foster care questions.
