Valerie claims her 16-year-old daughter, Veronica, lies, breaks curfew and hangs with the “wrong crowd” and she’s afraid it could cause her to end up getting kidnapped -- especially since she ran away once before for an entire week.


Valerie admits she can’t always keep an eye on Veronica due to her hectic work schedule, and therefore, she has tried to make up for the guilt she says she feels for her absence by buying Veronica things, including Botox injections and lip fillers!  And, Dr. Phil hears from both a current and a former nanny who share their opinions of what they believe is truly going on in Valerie’s household.
