          Tom and his wife, Karen, claim their 15-year-old daughter, Madison, has had upward of 100 encounters with police for everything from running away and stealing cars, to attacking her father, The couple also claims Madison is corrupting her younger sister, Liz.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Is your family a stressed mess?

          “My 13-year-old used to be the sweetest little girl, and now she’s belligerent and disrespectful,” says Tom.

          “After 13 years of Madison hating her younger sister, she’s now become her sidekick,” says Karen on Thursday’s Dr. Phil. “She and Madison have left the house in the middle of the night to go get drugs.”

          The couple claims that in addition to drinking, smoking marijuana and going joyriding with Madison, Liz has been in trouble for stealing, cyberbullying other kids, beating up a classmate, and like her sister, have also been charged with domestic battery for physically attacking Tom.

          “I feel like our 13-year-old’s behavior is out of control. By the time she’s at 15, she’ll probably make Madison look like a saint,” says Tom.

          “You’re in a situation that’s become highly combative,” Dr. Phil tells the couple. “So, you’ve got to diffuse this and deescalate it in some way, but you’ve also got to come up with a parenting plan that people are going to live with, that people are going to respect.“

          What steps will he advise them to take to regain control of their family? Check here to find out where you can watch Thursday’s Dr. Phil.
