          ‘When You Get Physical With A Child, You Lose’


          October 10, 2017

          Dakota, 16, says she smokes marijuana every day, skips school and does whatever she wants.

          Chaos in your life?

          Her mother, Cydney, claims Dakota, is “defiant” and a “brat” who has punched her in the face. She says she’s been forced to physically restrain Dakota “in self-defense.”

          “When you get physical with a child, you lose,” Dr. Phil tells Cydney. “You have taken things to the most basic level of interaction that you could possibly do.”

          Does he have a plan to help Cydney and Dakota repair their relationship?
