Mom Says Family Never Properly Grieved The Death Of Her Children’s Father
Jennifer says that when her daughters, Carly, 18, and Marie, 15, were 6 and 3 years old, their father died by suicide. She says their family has never properly grieved.
“It was a big loss to all of us,” says Jennifer. “I don’t think that we’ve been able to get the help that we need in order to heal.”
“It just feels like you don’t care,” says Marie, who claims she was recently assaulted. She says she’s been traumatized and is tired of feeling abandoned by her mother, who she claims blamed her for the attack. Jennifer claims that when she tried talking to her daughter about the attack, Marie blamed her for the assault.
Does Jennifer apologize to Marie? And later, what does Dr. Phil say to Jennifer and her daughters to help them move toward repairing their family relationships?
