          ‘The Fact That I Left My Daughter Behind Haunts Me,’ Says Mom


          November 16, 2017

          “My ex-husband, Jim, is the granddaddy of all narcissists,” claims Christina. “I left him because of the emotional neglect, sexual neglect, and the financial problems that we were having.” She claims she was forced to walk away from the family when her daughter, Tara, was 13.

          Now Tara is 21, and Christina says Jim has been a horrible example for their daughter. She claims he’s allowed Tara to work as an exotic dancer, and perform provocative webcam videos from her bedroom. “He not only allowed it, but he encouraged it because she was bringing in money to help pay the rent,” she says.

          Christina claims that Tara suffers with severe social anxiety, and claims that Jim’s bad parenting is directly related to the issues she’s having, which Jim denies. He insists he’s a good parent and claims Tara’s issues stem from being abandoned by Christina.

          “I do not regret leaving Jim, but I never intended to leave my daughter with him permanently,” says Christina. “The fact that I left my daughter behind haunts me.”

          How long does Christina say it’s been since she’s taken an active role in Tara’s life? Part one of this two-part Dr. Phil airs Thursday.
