          ‘This Is Not All You,’ Says Dr. Phil To Teen Whose Parents Claim She’s ‘Out Of Control’


          September 25, 2017

          Emma says her parents, Bill and Jen, think she’s out of control – but she doesn’t. “I feel like I’m a really good kid and most of the rules that they set, I feel like I follow,” she says. “I think their idea of being out of control is smoking too much and just being out all day.”

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Chaos in your life?

          Bill and Jen say Emma’s behaviors include smoking marijuana, joyriding, drinking, drug use, stealing from family members, and assaulting her grandfather. They also claim she’s a bad influence on her younger sister, Meredith.

          “This is not all you, I can tell you that,” Dr. Phil assures the 18-year-old.” There’s two sides to this, and they’ve got a lot of ownership in this, and you’ve got a lot of ownership in this.”

          What’s her response when he asks, “Do you think that, that a child, a teenager – whatever -should respect and obey their parents, particularly if they’re going to live in their house?”
