On Monday’s Dr. Phil, David claimed his daughter, Danielle, was “a ticking time bomb,” who drinks, takes street drugs, self-harms, rages, is violent with others and has no respect for authority.
TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Have a family drama that needs Dr. Phil’s help?
David’s girlfriend, Carlijn, claimed David enables Danielle’s bad behaviors. Danielle’s mother, Lora, said her daughter has had emotional problems since she was a young child.
Danielle admitted she rages and said she self-medicates to feel better. She also says she self-harms because she says it’s easier to take the physical pain than deal with her emotional pain.
Watch the video above for a recap of part one of this two-part Dr. Phil.
Then, how does Danielle react when Dr. Phil says her behavior is “outrageous, out of control and over the top – and it absolutely has to stop.”
