          Today’s Takeaway: Foster Care, an Ankle Bracelet and House Arrest: “I Blame My Parents for My Messed Up Life”

          VIDEO

          October 10, 2017

          Before Dakota turned 16 years old, she had already been in trouble with the law, placed on house arrest, and started the school year with an ankle bracelet.

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

          Despite facing two recent arrests and a possible stint in juvenile hall, Dakota claims to be a rebel who has no respect for authority and claims to have no remorse for her rebellious behavior.

          Her mother, Cydney, claims she cannot control Dakota and has given up disciplining her teenage daughter. She says she has been forced to use physical violence in self-defense just to protect herself. Dakota’s father, John, blames Cydney for their daughter’s behavior and comes face to face with Cydney for the first time in months.

          Watch the video above to hear Dr. Phil’s final thoughts on Dakota, and Cydney and John’s parenting decisions.
