          Dr. Phil To Mom Who Admits She Gave Up Trying To Get Custody Of Daughter: ‘She Deserves An Answer’


          May 9, 2017

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: In conflict and need resolution?

          “After a few times trying to go through the court, I finally just threw my hands up in the air and said, ‘[Expletive] it. I’ll see them when they’re 18,’” she says.

          In the video above, Dr. Phil questions Christine about her decision, especially since she says she wondered whether her daughter, Kelly, was being abused by her ex.

          “I’ve got to tell you, I’m stunned at that,” Dr. Phil says.

          “I kept fighting and fighting and fighting, until I couldn’t fight [any] more,” Christine say.

          “You’re not done. Your daughter is here and she deserves for you to sit here and talk to her,” Dr. Phil tells her. “Don’t you throw your hands up and walk out on her again. Answer the question.”
