          12-Year-Old Girl With Extreme Anger Issues Says ‘Violence Makes Me Comfortable’


          April 7, 2016

          Parents Melanie and Dave say their 12-year-old daughter, Aneska, has violent, uncontrollable outbursts, which started when she was 3 years old.

          Over the years, Aneska’s parents say their daughter’s behavior has progressively gotten worse – and Aneska admits she has extreme anger issues.

          “My behavior is pretty bad,” the child says. “On a scale of a 1 to 10, I would think my anger would be 10. Trust me, when that happens, you do not want to be in my room.”

          During her fits of rage, Aneska has targeted her mother, her father and even her three younger siblings.

          “If my brothers and my sisters do something annoying, they’re in big trouble. I’ll hurt them. I’ll threaten [them],” Aneska says. “One time, they made me really angry and I chased my siblings around with a knife.

          “Violence makes me feel comfortable,” Aneska adds. “It’s just a bad situation.”

          Can Dr. Phil help Aneska and her parents get to the root of her problems?
