          ‘Can You Acknowledge That Your Role As The Parent Here Has Blurred Boundaries?’ Dr. Phil Asks Mom Of Teen


          December 13, 2018

          Cassidy says over the years, her mother, Melinda, has been more of a friend to her than a parent. The 18-year-old claims her mom has drank and done drugs with her and her friends, and that her mom even hooked up with a 19-year-old ex-boyfriend of one of Cassidy’s friends.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Need help fixing a broken relationship?

          Melinda denies doing drugs with her daughter and denies having sex with the young man. However, she does admit that she likes to post selfies and show off her body because she says she’s proud and confident of her looks.

          “You’re entitled to a life, and you’re entitled to be proud of yourself and have fun,” Dr. Phil says to Melinda. “Can you acknowledge that your role as the parent here has blurred boundaries and you have not always taken the adult position in this relationship?”

          Hear Melinda’s response in the video above.
