          Teen Pleads With Parents Not To Send Him To Treatment: ‘I Swear I Will Change Everything If You Just Let Me Stay Home’

          VIDEO

          October 12, 2017

          Fifteen-year-old Rivers, his mom, Angie, and dad, Hunter, meet backstage after taping with Dr. Phil.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Do you need Dr. Phil to “get real” with someone?

          The couple claims he calls them names, refuses to go to school, and acts out violently; intimidating them, and putting their younger children at risk, and have determined to take Dr. Phil’s referral to Turn-About-Ranch; an adolescent treatment center with a focus on helping teens develop emotional and behavioral accountability.

          “I swear I will change everything if you just let me stay home. I just want to be around everybody” says Rivers, pleading with his parents not to send him away. “ ‘Cause I feel like if I learn how to be good around y’all, then I’ll be good.”

          Will Angie and Hunter stick by their decision to send Hunter to Turn-About-Ranch?
