          Dr. Phil To Reluctant Mom Of 5: ‘Did It Ever Occur To You To Stop Having Children?’


          April 25, 2018

          Lisa claims her daughter, Jenny’s, five children, ages 8 to 18, are “basically raising themselves” because “Jenny acts more like a teenager than a mother.”

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Have a family drama that needs Dr. Phil’s help?

          “When Jennifer was 17, and we found out that she was pregnant, she was also diagnosed with cancer. After the baby was born, I took care of her and the baby,” says Lisa. She claims that even though Jennifer kept having children, she didn’t interact them, saying,”She stayed in her room and watched TV and played Candy Crush.”

          “I don’t play with my kids. It’s really, really difficult for me,” admits Jenny who claims she never wanted children. She says she locks herself in her bedroom so she can avoid them.

          Jenny claims that after a car accident when she was 16, Lisa kept her “loaded” which caused her to become dependent. “She kept me high instead of taking her child who was using drugs to a place to get help so that I could learn how to one, stay sober; two, become a parent.”

          “My mother told me she kept me loaded because it was easier than dealing with me,” she claims.

          “I didn’t feed her pills and get her loaded,” says Lisa denying Jenny’s accusations. She says she’s worried that she’s no longer there to protect her grandkids from their mom.

          Jenny claims that if Lisa had set a better example for her, she’d be a better parent today. How does she respond when Dr. Phil asks, “Did it ever occur to you to stop having children?”
