          14-Year-Old’s Message To Mom: ‘I Will Do Whatever I Can Not To Be Like You … You’re A Shame’


          April 5, 2018

          Tatum says she’s full of anger, especially toward her mom, Hallie. The 14-year-old says her mom was in-and-out of her life as a child, choosing drugs over her. She says that once her mom came back into her life, she left again after her baby brother passed away three years ago, turning back to drugs and landing in jail.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Betrayed by a loved one?

          Dr. Phil points out to Hallie and Tatum’s stepfather that the teen acts out as a defense mechanism. “This is coming from pain and self-protection on her point,” he says.

          “She has every reason to feel that way. I handled things completely wrong,” Hallie admits.

          Tatum shares her thoughts with Hallie. “You might be my mom, but you’re not my mom. Noni is,” she says, referring to her grandmother who has raised her. “I will never grow up to be like you, ever. I don’t want to be like you, and I will do whatever I can not to be like you because, honestly, I’m not trying to be rude, you’re a shame. I love you, but you’re a shame.”

          See Hallie’s response in the video above. This episode airs Thursday. Watch more here.
