TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: At your final breaking point?

“I have been spoon-fed and babied by her,” says Taylor, who claims Michelle failed to teach her any necessary life skills. “I’m not living up to my full potential. I’m 23 years old and I have no idea how to take care of myself.”

“Taylor acts like a spoiled brat when she doesn’t get her way,” says Michelle who denies her daughter’s claim. She’s claiming that her daughter is “very lazy.”

She continues, “Taylor can’t function without me in her life. She dropped out of college. I think she’s living like she’s 12. I’m trying to make her a better person and showing her responsibility. But when I try to explain to her - you know - the responsibilities, she just refuses to listen to me.”

Why does Michelle say she believes Taylor won’t be able to survive on her own?
