          Mom Says She No Longer Wants To Raise Her 13-Year-Old Daughter


          September 14, 2016

          “My daughter is out of control,” says Barbara Ann about her daughter, Danielle. “She has stolen my credit cards, she has stolen money out of my wallet. She has even taken my jewelry.”

          Barbara Ann says the 13-year-old has also stolen her car and the teen even stole a Dr. Phil crew member’s car and went joyriding.

          Barbara Ann says Danielle is has physically attacked her, thrown rocks at her window and even tried to grab the steering wheel while Barbara Ann was driving – and she’s worried she will end up dead or killing someone else.

          Claiming she no longer wants to raise her own daughter, Barbara Ann turns to Dr. Phil for help. “She’s not afraid of the police. She’s not afraid of anyone. I really don’t know what she’s capable of, and that’s the scary part,” Barbara Ann frets. “I’m definitely at the end of my rope. I just don’t know what to do with her anymore.”
