          See How Teen With Anger Issues Reacts When She’s Offered Residential Treatment Help


          February 12, 2019

          Destoni has been suffering from anger issues for 10 years. The 14-year-old says she believes it started when her father was sent to prison when she was 3 or 4 years old, and over the years, her temper has escalated. She admits she hits and punches things, has chased her younger sister with a butcher knife and has threatened to bring a gun to school and shoot people.

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

          Her mother, Melissa, says Destoni is aggressive, violent and a bully. She admits she has given into her daughter through the years to keep the peace in her house where she also has younger daughters who are scared of Destoni.

          “I think you as a family, and Destoni as an individual, are on a collision course with disaster, and something dramatic has to happen to disrupt this,” Dr. Phil tells mother and daughter on Tuesday’s episode.
