          Why A Mother Says She Filed A Restraining Order Against Her “Out-Of-Control” 23-Year-old Daughter


          September 6, 2016

          Wendy claims her 23-year-old daughter, Stephanie, has been abusive and manipulative since she was a small child and Wendy says she’s now at her wits’ end.

          “Stephanie is a bully. She’s totally out of control,” says Wendy. “Stephanie has two speeds: anger and manipulation.”

          She says her daughter has been arrested five or more times for alleged kidnapping, reckless driving, breaking and entering and petty theft. She also claims Stephanie has stolen $13,000 from her bank account.

          “Every day, Stephanie is cursing at me, slamming things,” she says. “I’ve had to call the police so many times I cannot even remember.”

          However, Stephanie claims her mother is really the problem because she is “always yelling and acting ‘psycho.’”

          Wendy says that, "fearing for her safety," she's kicked her daughter out of her house three or four times, most recently two months ago and filed a temporary restraining order.

          “I feel like the fighting will never stop,” says Wendy, who has written to Dr. Phil 14 times. “She’s made my life a living hell.”

          Watch the video above to hear how this mother-and daughter interact. And, what does Wendy say she thinks may be causing Stephanie’s behavior? Can Dr. Phil get this mother and daughter to come to a truce? This episode of Dr. Phil airs Tuesday. Check here to see where you can watch.
