          Mom Says Teen Is Violent, Acts Out, Tells Her To ‘Shut The Hell Up’


          February 11, 2019

          Melissa says her daughter, Destoni, was the perfect child until she started kindergarten, and that’s when she says things took a turn for the worse. She says the now 14-year-old is disrespectful, violent and aggressive – both at home and in school — and she’s been suspended nine times.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Is your teen in crisis?

          “On two different occasions, Destoni came at both my babysitter and my older daughter with a butcher knife,” Melissa says. “On a good day, Destoni will tell me to shut the hell up. On a normal day, Destoni will tell me to shut the [expletive] up.”

          Melissa’s mother, Michelle, agrees that her granddaughter is out of control with a “major” attitude. “She’s uncontrollable and she’s a monster,” she says. “She just recently yelled out that one teacher had chlamydia.”
