          Dr. Phil To Parents: ‘You Can’t Have A Psychiatric Hospital Parent Your Child’


          January 10, 2018

          Jim and Beth claim their daughter, Madie, has a history of lying.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Have a Volatile Child, Parent or Sibling?

          “It’s an everyday occurrence,” says Jim, claiming that the 18-year-old “scammed” them into buying her $900 in tools for a job he says they later found out never existed.

          “Days later we found out that Madie had returned all the tools for cash. I don’t think she cares,” he says.

          The couple also says their daughter’s behaviors are out of control in other ways, claiming she steals, manipulates people, runs away from home, is destructive and is verbally and physically abusive.

          Beth, who says Madie was diagnosed with ADHD and bipolar disorder at age 9, says they’ve had her committed to a psychiatric hospital for care twice as a teenager.

          When Dr. Phil tells them, “But you can’t have a psychiatric hospital parent your child,” how does the couple respond?
