          ‘There’s Nothing That I Want To Do That School Will Do For Me,’ Claims 15-Year-Old


          October 12, 2017

          Rivers’ parents, Angie and Hunter, say he is chronically truant and has refused to attend 24 of the past 37 days of the current school year.

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

          “There’s nothing that I want to do that school will do for me,” claims the 15-year-old who says he wants to pursue a career in music.

          The couple says Rivers’ behavior is unpredictable. They claim he screams obscenities at them, throws temper tantrums when he doesn’t get his way and has acted out violently toward them, and their younger children.

          What does Dr. Phil mean when he tells Rivers, “Your life’s getting ready to make a really dramatic change for the better.” And how does Rivers respond?
