          "SOS! My Beautiful Violinist Daughter is Living in a Shelter"

          April 04, 2018

          PLAYING “SOS! My Beautiful Violinist Daughter is Living in a Shelter”
          Marilyn says she provided a perfect childhood for her daughter, Anika, including Montessori schools, softball, music lessons and dance.

          And even though her daughter got great grades and played the violin at Carnegie Hall, Marilyn claims she began to notice disturbing behavioral issues that no doctor could ever diagnose. Since then, she says she has been begging for help from anyone who will listen because she claims at this point, her now 31-year-old daughter is not only homeless, she’s also a mentally ill, unfit mother of a 6-month-old baby who is now in CPS custody. But Anika claims her mother wants her to be sick so she can control her and that she loves the attention. Anika says she is a fit mother and wants her baby back. Does Dr. Phil agree?
