Heather says she’s having trouble parenting her teen daughter Marissa. She says the 15-year-old was a “phenomenal young lady” until two years ago, when she started acting out. She says now, the teen sneaks out, has stolen her car, lies, and treats her disrespectfully.
 
Dr. Michele Borba, parenting expert and author of the new book Thrivers: The Surprising Reasons Why Some Kids Struggle and Others Shine, which offers parents practical ways to teach children how to cope, joins Dr. Phil on Thursday’s episode to offer advice to Heather.
 

“The first step to really raising a resilient child is knowing who your child is, not what you want them to become,” Dr. Borba says. “Because then your parenting can just help that child along the way.”
 
Heather and her daughter filled out a Core Assets Survey before meeting with Dr. Phil. The results are revealed in the video above – and Dr. Borba explains how their answers can help them develop a better relationship. Plus, Dr. Phil and Dr. Borba share more parenting advice on how to raise a resilient child.
