          Dr. Phil Tells Mom of 16-Year-Old: ‘I Think You Are Absolutely Breaking This Girl’s Heart’


          April 10, 2017

          Arlene recently moved her twice-convicted sex offender boyfriend into the home she shared with her 16-year-old daughter, Morgan. Arlene says she’s certain Mark was falsely accused and she would never put her daughter in harm’s way. The teen says she told her mom she felt uncomfortable by the situation, but her pleas fell on deaf ears.

          Huge family drama?

          Morgan says her mom was given two choices by the Department of Family and Child Services – to move Mark out of the home or move Morgan out – and her mom chose the latter. Morgan is now living with her mom’s best friend.

          The teen also says this isn’t the first time her mom has put her in a dangerous situation. She says when she was a young girl, her mom dated another sex offender who touched her inappropriately.

          In the video above, Dr. Phil has an important message for Arlene – and one for Morgan.

          “I think you are absolutely breaking this girl’s heart,” he says to Arlene. “She is saying that time, and time, and time, and time again, she’s come in second. I think she feels like she’s come in second not just to this man but to other men. I think she feels like she’s come in second to your agenda, to your priorities, and I think that that is a painful reality you’re embracing.”

          To Morgan, Dr. Phil continues, “I’m very sorry that you’re in this situation. I think she is so desperate for male companionship and so desperate for male acceptance and approval, that she is blinded to the danger that she would be putting you in and that is causing her to make irrational and irresponsible decisions as a mother.”
