Kimber says her daughter, Brittney, recently failed ninth grade for the third time and now refuses to go to school. She says Brittney spends her days at the skate park drinking, using drugs and chasing boys.
“She’s convinced that she’s going to have a large following and be a YouTuber and a famous star,” Kimber says.
Kimber’s husband, Tim adds, “These days, Brittney pretty much comes and goes as she wishes. She refuses to get a job.”WATCH: ‘We Have Not Parented Well’ Says Mom Of ‘Out-Of-Control’ Teen Daughter
Brittney, however, says her parents are the problem.
“The truth is they just want to see the world their way and not realize that I’m actually a great kid,” says the teen, adding that she’s just doing everything that a normal teenager does. “At my house, it’s my rules and I, honestly, do not think there’s any other rules.”
Turning to Dr. Phil for help, Kimber says, “My greatest fear is that Brittney is going to end up missing. She is my only child, and she’s just not going to grow up to be anything. I completely do not know what to do anymore.”
