          Mom Says Daughter Needs To Turn To Faith To Overcome Childhood Trauma — Like She Did


          May 4, 2018

          Shirley says she raised her children in a strict Catholic household with no pop music, no short skirts for her daughter and no sex before marriage. She says that ever since she kicked out her daughter for voting for Hillary Clinton, the 19-year-old has been leading a dangerous an immoral life – drinking, getting arrested and dating men for money — and she says she believes it’s because Marie was sexually abused by her brother when she was a child.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Is Dr. Phil your only hope?

          “Because I had been molested in the past, it allows me to understand Marie more,” Shirley says. “Because of the sexual abuse, I wanted to distance myself from my family. It caused me to seek out men’s attention through sex, and I can see that’s what Marie’s doing now.”

          However, Shirley says she was able to change her behavior through faith — and she hopes her daughter can do the same. “If Marie turns to her faith again, she will stay away from these evils, like prostitution,” she says.

          Does Marie blame her behavior on the abuse? See what she says in the video above. And hear Dr. Phil’s thoughts on Wednesday’s episode. Check here to see where you can watch.
