          However, her mother, Lisa, says she is raising the kids because Amanda is “homeless, jobless and an unfit mother.”

          Mother and daughter are now engaged in a custody battle that includes, yelling and arguing in front of the children, and cops being called numerous times.

          In the video above, Amanda tells Dr. Phil that she’s done everything Child Protective Services has asked her to do so she can get her kids back. But Dr. Phil points out that’s not the case. Why does he say that Amanda’s behavior may be hindering her from being reunited with her children? This episode of Dr. Phil airs Thursday. Watch more here.
