          ‘I Can’t Take Care Of Kids When I Can’t Take Care Of Myself,’ Says Young Mom


          April 17, 2018

          Jazmon is a young mom with a 3-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son who she says mean the world to her. But Jazmon has given up custody of both her children. When her son was 3 months old, she left his father for a new man whom she married and had a daughter. A few years later, after giving birth to a stillborn baby, she left her husband for her current boyfriend Mike, who her family claims is abusive.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Life in crisis?

          After speaking with Jazmon and hearing about her troubled childhood, Dr. Phil says he believes she has a damaged personal truth that is affecting her behavior, to which she agrees.

          In the video above, Jazmon hears what the fathers of her children say about her behavior.

          Jazmon’s mom, Splendor, reacts to the video. “The kids want their mom,” she pleads with her daughter. “Why won’t you be there for them? Why won’t you fight for them?”

          “I can’t take care of kids when I can’t take care of myself,” Jazmon replies. “I can’t love them if I can’t love myself. You need to realize that."

          On Tuesday’s episode of Dr. Phil, Dr. Phil offers Jazmon the opportunity to seek help. Will she agree? See what happens after the show. Check here to see where you can watch.
