          In the video above from Tuesday’s episode of Dr. Phil, the 16-year-old, who says her rebellious behavior started four years ago, shares why she began to act out.

          “I feel like as I got older, I realized that my sisters had a dad and I didn’t have a dad,” she says of her biological father who is no longer alive. She adds that she wants a better relationship with her mother.
