‘Mentally, I Always Feel In A Bad Place When I’m At Home,’ Says Teenage Runaway
Dustin claims his wife, Amethyst, allows her daughter, Kyrah, to “rule” their household and that their disagreements over how to raise the teen have been causing friction in their marriage. He claims that whenever Kyrah doesn’t get her way, she runs away from home.
Kyrah admits that she has run away multiple times and says that’s because, “Mentally, I always feel in a bad place when I’m at home.” She says there was a major trauma in her past and that she feels hurt because Dustin doesn’t believe her.
